Ondo 2016: Elections Will Not be Postponed - INEC

INEC has rejected calls from the Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the PDP to postpone the upcoming governorship elections in Ondo state.

PDP wanted the election be shifted to allow the Supreme Court take a decision on pending issues relating to its candidate for the election.

“There are 28 political parties contesting the election, we cannot postpone it because of just one party,” the Resident Electoral Commissioner for Ondo State, Olusegun Agbaje, said on Sunday.

“This is a pre- election issue, it can go on even up to the Supreme Court, so we cannot wait for that. The election must go on.”

“With this level of preparation, we cannot be talking about postponement,” he noted.

“Let them go and put their house in order, and settle their problems, we cannot allow that to hold us back.”
