Elections Have Not Been Cancelled Anywhere In Nigeria, Says INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission has declared that, contrary to the rumour, it has not cancelled any election so far in any part of the country where the presidential and National Assembly polls had held.

The chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, stated this during a press briefing held at the National Collation Centre in Abuja on Sunday.

Answering reporters’ inquiry about alleged cancellation of the elections in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, he said the Commission had not received any report to that effect.

“I’m hearing it for the first time. We’ve not cancelled any elections in FCT, we have not cancelled any election in Nigeria.

“The declaration of elections null and void is the responsibility of the judiciary”, he stated.

Yakubu also pleaded with the social media to be circumspect in the announcement of results.
