The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced plans to hold supplementary polls in some states across the federation in the coming days.

The electoral body will conduct the supplementary polls on April 15, which will include two governorship, five senatorial, 31 House of Representatives and 57 state constituencies’ seats.

The supplementary elections will be held in 142 polling units with 96,319 registered voters in Adamawa State for the governorship polls. INEC declared the March 18 governorship election inconclusive in Adamawa and Kebbi states.

The Kebbi State governorship election was declared inconclusive following the cancellation of results in 69 polling units across 20 of the 21 local government areas of the state.

Meanwhile, in Adamawa, the polls were declared inconclusive because cancelled votes were more than the margin of victory between the incumbent governor, Ahmadu Fintiri and the runner-up, Aisha Dahiru of the APC.

Supplementary Senatorial elections will be held in the North-western states of Sokoto, Kebbi and Zamfara. In Sokoto, the supplementary polls are to hold for all three senatorial seats – Sokoto North, Sokoto East and Sokoto South – where elections were earlier declared inconclusive.

The election will be held in 389 polling units across all the 23 LGAs of the state, with 227,743 eligible voters participating.

In Kebbi and Zamfara, the election will hold in one senatorial district each, that is Kebbi North and Zamfara Central.

The election will be held in 23 polling units in the Kebbi North senatorial elections, while voters in 83 polling units will be voting for the Zamfara Central senatorial election with 13,243 and 47,277 eligible voters, respectively.

The supplementary elections for the House of Representatives will be held for 31 constituencies in 15 states.

The states involved are Akwa Ibom (2), Anambra (1), Bayelsa (1), Edo (1), Imo (1), Kano (2), Kebbi (2), Kogi (1), Oyo (2), Rivers (2), Sokoto (11), Taraba (1), Zamfara (2), Jigawa (1) and Ebonyi state (1).

Furthermore, polls will be held in 57 constituencies in 17 states for the State House of Assembly position.

The states involved are Akwa Ibom (1), Bayelsa (1), Ebonyi (5), Edo (3), Ekiti (1), Imo (1), Kaduna (5), Kano (14), Kebbi (8), Niger (4), Ogun (1), Taraba (1), Yobe (1), Jigawa (3), Katsina (3), Enugu (1), Adamawa (4).

The supplementary elections would provide an opportunity for registered voters who could not vote during the previous elections to exercise their franchise.

INEC has assured that it would ensure a level playing field for all political parties and candidates in the supplementary polls. The electoral body also urged all registered voters to come out and exercise their franchise in a peaceful and orderly manner.
