INEC announces date for the 2023 general elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced the date for the 2023 general elections.

INEC Chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu, made the announcement during a one-day public hearing on the National Electoral Offences Commission (Establishment) Bill 2021, organised by the Senate Committee on INEC on Wednesday April 28.

According to Yakubu, the 2023 general elections will hold on Saturday, February 18, 2023.

“By the principle established by the Commission, the 2023 General Elections will hold on Saturday, 18th February, 2023, which is exactly one year, nine months, two weeks and six days or 660 days from today.

We hope to release the timetable and schedule of activities for the general elections immediately after the Anambra Governorship election scheduled to hold on 6th November, 2021.

In order to do so, there should be clarity and certainty about the electoral legal framework to govern the election. We are confident that the National Assembly will do the needful in earnest.”he said
