INEC reschedules announcement of Edo State guber elction results

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed the much anticipated official announcement of results from the September 28 2016 Edo State gubernatorial elections.

INEC was due to announce the results in the morning of 29 September but following a meeting held with resident electoral commissioners, Edo State Resident Electoral Commissioner, Sam Olumekun, said the results would be unveiled towards evening.

The major reason behind the postponement is apparently the late arrival of poll materials from some wards in 18 LGAs of the state. Reports say that some ballot boxes arrived as late as 12:AM on Thursday (today).
