The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Daily Correspondents learned, are in a meeting right now contemplating the postponement of tomorrow’s presidential election.

This is due to the problem with sending electoral materials to some places around the nation.

Multiple sources close to the electoral commission said the postponement being considered is due to some logistics challenges being faced by the commission in many states.

Daily Correspondents reliably gathered that many states in the country are yet to even receive delivery of result sheets as at the time of filing in this report.

The electoral body is facing difficulty distributing sensitive electoral materials to some states of the federation, an official said.

A formal announcement is expected on Friday night, our sources said.

It is unclear at this time what the new election date would be.

“There will definitely be a postponement but we are yet to take a decision on the new date,” an official said.
