The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has recently made an announcement that elections will not be taking place in 240 polling units across 28 states of the federation during the February 25 and March 11 general elections.

The decision has left many voters and political party agents confused and concerned. In this article, we aim to shed light on the reasons behind this decision and what it means for the upcoming elections.

The poling units where elections will not hold range from one in Edo, Kwara, Rivers, and Zamfara States to 38 in Imo State, which has the highest number. According to INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, the affected polling units have no registered voters. This is why the Commission has deemed it unnecessary to conduct elections in these units.

Moreover, the Commission has warned that it will not accept a situation where two or more party agents report to the polling units, causing confusion. Any agent found to be engaged in such activities will be arrested and prosecuted. The Commission is taking strict measures to ensure a fair and peaceful election process.

With the exclusion of the 240 polling units, elections will take place in about 176,606 polling units across the country.

This means that a large majority of the country’s voters will still have the opportunity to exercise their right to vote. The Commission is working to make sure that the election process runs smoothly and that the results accurately reflect the will of the people.
