The stakeholders had earlier in the meeting agreed on Feb. 10, 2018 as date for the bye election.

The State PDP Chairman, Mr Victor Bala, had appealed to the commission to reschedule the election from mid Jan. to Feb. 10, 2018 as his party was pre occupied with preparations for its national convention.

Mr Augustine Kunnini, the State’s All Progressives Congress (APC) Treasurer, agreed with Bala’s position, saying that the date would give the parties ample time to prepare for the election.
