Following intense pressure from security agencies, the Independent National Electoral Commission will postpone the Edo State governorship election by two weeks.

The election had earlier been scheduled for Saturday September 10, 2016.

Insider source confirmed that the election may now hold in two weeks

There has been apprehension if the election will go ahead, but a reliable source within the INEC confirmed that the election has been postponed.

Investigations further revealed that the police pulled out it’s personnel while the National Youth Service Corp (NYSC) refused to deployed Corps members for the Saturday exercise.

The source said that it appears impossible for INEC to deploy staff and material.

He said, “There is no security to escort them simply because they are unavailable. The security agencies are going to formally communicate their security advise to us in a short while

“We shall meet to take a decision. At the moment it is no longer feasible to deploy and conduct the elections
NYSC has advised us that many parents have called to withdraw their children from election duty. Since they form the bulk of election duty personnel, their withdrawal is a major challenge.”

More details shortly…
