The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday extended the schedule of the 2023 general elections.

The development came just a few hours after the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, ruled out an adjustment of the elections timetable.

The INEC National Commissioner, and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, disclosed this in a statement after the commission’s meeting with the leadership of political parties in Abuja.

The statement read: “However, based on the Timetable and Schedule of Activities for the 2023 General Election, the parties have now pleaded with the Commission to use the six-day period between June 4 and June 9.

“This, according to the Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC) is to conclude outstanding primaries and prepare to upload the list of candidates and their affidavits on the INEC Candidates Nomination Portal.”
