Nigeria/International News

The Senatorial election in Enugu East slated for February 25 has been moved to March 11 2023 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Mahmood Yakubu, INEC Chairman,  made this known at a media briefing on Friday in Abuja.

He stated that the postponement became necessary following the killing of Oyibo Chukwu, the Labour Party (LP)’s senatorial candidate for the district.

He also said the Labour Party reached out to the electoral body to convey its intention to provide a replacement and go ahead with the poll at the new date.

The Labour party candidate was burnt alive with three others in his car three days ago.
