– INEC has fixed December 10 for the controversial re-run election in Rivers state

– The commission also fixed the Lagos and FCT re-run polls for December 3

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed December 10 for the controversial re-run election in Rivers state.

The commission also fixed dates for Lagos state and  Federal Capital Territory (FCT) pending elections.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed December 10 for the controversial re-run election in Rivers state.

According to a statement by the electoral body, Lagos and FCT re-run polls have been scheduled for December 3.

However, the delay in the conduct of the Rivers rerun election has been the major concern.

Recall that the delay had attracted the attention of the Senate, which on Wednesday, November 2, gave INEC an ultimatum to conduct the pending re-run election or force the Senate to embark on strike.

Rivers state still has a senatorial, House of Representatives and  House of Assembly elections yet to be conducted.

INEC had in July postponed the Rivers rerun election for the second time.

In September, after being unable to keep to its earlier promise, INEC said it will conduct the election at no particular date in October, but again failed to do so.
