INEC Announces Date For 2023 General Elections

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

INEC chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu said on Wednesday during a one-day public hearing on the national electoral offences commission (establishment) bill 2021, organized by the senate committee on INEC that the general poll will hold on Saturday, February the 18th, 2023.  He said exactly one year, nine months, two weeks and five days from now.

He said timetable and schedule of activities will be released immediately after the Anambra governorship election scheduled for November this year.

Meanwhile, the UK has urged the quick passage of Nigeria’s electoral law.

UK’s minister for Africa, James Duddridge said in an interview in Abuja, passing the bill and its enactment would build more confidence in the country’s electoral process as that plays a very important role in democratic governance.

The electoral act amendment bill is pending before the national assembly.

He said though the UK was interested in seeing Nigeria’s democracy become stronger, it could only play an advisory role and not dictate to Nigeria what it should do.
