INEC has said that political parties can resume their political campaigns ahead of Saturday’s rescheduled presidential and National Assembly elections.
The commission made the announcement in a statement issued Monday evening. It said the campaigns should end their campaigns by midnight of Thursday, February 21, 2019.
This marks a U-turn from the position taken by the commission on Saturday when it announced the postponement of the elections and insisted that campaigns remain closed.
Political parties especially the APC and PDP had vowed to resume their campaigns with or without INEC’s approval.
