“We will retain all logistics arrangements made during the general elections. To that effect, we will use the earlier approved ward and local government collation centres”, Ezeonu said.

He appealed to stakeholders and communities to help maintain the sanctity and security of all the centres designated for the exercise.

“There will be restriction of movement in all the constituencies where election will be held. We wish to restate that this exercise is restricted to only political parties that participated in the earlier elections, for which a rerun or supplementary election has been ordered”, Ezeonu added.
