2023 Election Update: Extension of Voting Period

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced the extension of the voting period for the presidential and national assembly elections to Sunday, February 26, 2023.

According to INEC, this was necessitated due to the level of violence experienced and “tactical disenfranchisement” (late arrival of election materials) in some areas.

The affected areas and states where the election process would continue are:
1. Lagos: Surulere, Ikate, Okota, Eti-Osa, Kosofe, and Oshodi.
2. FCT.
3. Ebonyi.
4. Rivers.
5. Imo
6. Anambra.
7. Kano.
8. Edo.
9. Delta.
10. Kogi.
11. Bayelsa.
12. Enugu.
13. Sokoto.
14. Taraba.
15. Abia, and,
16. Ekiti.

Voting in the affected areas will resume on February 26, 2023, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Therefore, it is advised that staff and stakeholders continue to adhere to all government and INEC directives and security advisories concerning this election.

We would keep a close eye on the situation and provide timely situation updates across the country.
