 The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has extended voting in the Presidential and National Elections to Sunday. The extension will apply only to area were difficulties were experienced in today’s voting process.
INEC  directed all Resident Electoral Commissioners in the country to conduct election on Sunday in areas where there were hitches.

The Chairman of INEC Committee on Information and Voters Education, Mr. Chris Iyimoga, who addressed the press at the Media Centre of the National Collation Centre in Abuja, said with some hitches in some parts of the country, there was no way the Presidential and National Assembly Elections could be concluded today (Saturday) .
He said: “Each REC has been informed to conduct election on Sunday where there are hitches with accreditation or voting. I cannot say exactly the number of states affected but the problems are not in all the states.”
Other National Commissioners  at the briefing were Ishmael Igbani; Muhammadu Wali; Engr. Nuru Yakubu; and Gladys Nwafor.
On his part, National Commissioner Igbani said: “No one can really say what went wrong in Otuoke but the machine or the card readers could not capture the fingerprints of the President.
