In his words, “The new date for the election became necessary in order to avoid the clash with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) general election timetable.

“This is in line with Section 95 of Benue State Electoral (Amendment) Law 2012, which has given the commission the powers to abridge its timetable.”

He urged political parties featuring in the election to submit the names of their polling agents to the commission on or before Monday, April 25 from 9a.m. to 4 p.m., while campaigns would end by midnight of April 28.
