The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended voting in the Presidential and National Elections to Sunday.
INEC has therefore directed all Resident Electoral Commissioners in the country to conduct election on Sunday in areas where there were hitches.
The Chairman of INEC Committee on Information and Voters Education, Mr. Chris Iyimoga, who addressed the press at the Media Centre of the National Collation Centre in Abuja, said with some hitches in some parts of the country, there was no way the Presidential and National Assembly Elections could be concluded today (Saturday) .
He said: “Each REC has been informed to conduct election on Sunday where there are hitches with accreditation or voting. I cannot say exactly the number of states affected but the problems are not in all the states.”
Other National Commissioners at the briefing were Ishmael Igbani; Muhammadu Wali; Engr. Nuru Yakubu; and Gladys Nwafor.
On his part, National Commissioner Igbani said: “No one can really say what went wrong in Otuoke but the machine or the card readers could not capture the fingerprints of the President and the First Lady. Where such a situation arises, we have to use manual system.”
Commenting on the hacking of INEC website, Commissioner Nuru Yakubu said: “We have lifted the contents on our website and relocated to another site.”
