No Date Yet For Imo North Senatorial Re Run - INEC


The Independent National Electoral Commission, Imo State office (INEC) has denied fixing a date for the re run polls for Imo North senatorial re run election.

There have been rumours on the social media that the Commission has fixed Saturday, March 5, 2016 for the re run.

INNONEWS.COM learnt from a top official of the Commission in Owerri that the new date for the election is a mere rumour.

“There is no new date. It is all false” the top official told our reporter.

 The State INEC Public Relations Officer, Mrs. Emmanuella Opara was also quoted by a national daily  saying that a new date has not been fixed for the election.

“INEC is shocked that some people fixed and started spreading March 5, 2016 as the supposed new date for the re run election. Today is Tuesday and there is no way information about an election that is supposed to be conducted on Saturday couldn’t have been passed to our office before now” Mrs. Opara was quoted as saying.

“Please, assist INEC to inform the citizens to inform the citizens not to listen to rumour peddlers. INEC cannot conduct the re- run election in secret or to the exclusion of any political party. The people must be properly informed when a date is fixed for the re- run when a date is fixed for the re- run” Mrs Opara said.
