The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commissioner, Prof Mahmod Yakubu, says there is no possibility that the 2019 general elections will be postponed.
Yakubu said this in an interview on Osasu Show posted on the show’s You Tube Channel.
He said, “I cannot see any possibility of a postponement. We started this a long time ago; we have gone ahead with preparations. INEC is not even contemplating the possibility of a postponement.”
He said the commission had contacted the National Youth Service Corps to release corps members for elections.
Yakubu added, “We are liaising with the NYSC for ad hoc workers to be used for the elections, and where there are shortfalls, the commission has a very clear policy: we will make up the difference by using students of federal tertiary institutions.
