Announcing this in Abuja on Monday, the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Mr Rotimi Oyekanmi, said the decision to conduct the supplementary polls on April 15 was reached at the commission’s meeting.
“Arising from its meeting held today, the Independent National Electoral Commission has decided that all outstanding governorship, National and State Assembly supplementary elections will take place on Saturday 15th April 2023.
