The Independent National Electoral Commission on Tuesday fixed Thursday, March 28, 2019 for the Adamawa State governorship supplementary election.
The state High Court in Adamawa lifted a restraining order which stopped INEC from conducting the supplementary election earlier fixed by the commission for March 23.
INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Kassim Gaidam, said this during a press briefing at the INEC office in Yola.
He said, “The court has this morning vacated the order restraining INEC from going ahead with the conduct of the supplementary election, consequently, the commission is now free to go ahead and conclude the elections as was done in other states of the federation.
“As a result of this development, the commission at the highest level in consultation with security agencies has decided that the supplementary elections should hold on Thursday, March 28, 2019. The elections will go on as was arranged.”
