He Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed until Sunday the final compilation of the gubernatorial election results in Bayelsa State.
INEC Returning Officer Farouk Kuta revealed this on Saturday night while briefing journalists at the commission’s state headquarters in Yenagoa.
Kuta, a professor and vice-chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, Minna, Niger State, said only the result of one local government area out of the eight local governments in the state was ready. He said the collection could not begin because INEC was not sure if those from other local government areas would be ready before midnight.
