FCT LG polls: INEC fixes April 13 for rerun elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has fixed Wednesday, April 13, 2016 for the conduct of FCT rerun elections after the exercise was declared inconclusive in four of the six local council areas.

Speaking today at the commission’s head office in Abuja, the National Commissioner in charge of North Central Zone and the FCT, Prof. Anthonia Simbine justified the reasons for the rerun.

The reasons for the cancelled polls were due to issues ranging from violence, over voting and non-use of smart card readers for accreditation of voters as per the commissioner.

The rerun election is expected to hold in 39 polling units in 20 registration areas of the Federal Capital Territory covering Municipal Area Council, Gwagwalada, Kuje and Kwali area councils.
