Elections: By Wednesday, Nigerians should know their president – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced the timeframe for result declaration of the 2019 Presidential Election.

The commission assured that the results would not take longer than the 2015 elections, in spite of the number of presidential candidates, size of the result sheets and increased voter population.

INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu said this on Wednesday in Abuja while briefing journalists on the state of preparedness of the commission for the polls.

Yakubu said the commission was working to ensure that it does not keep Nigerians waiting for days without declaring the results.

He said the time limit would not exceed what obtained in 2015.

Recall that in 2015, while the Presidential Election held on a Saturday, a winner was not declared until the following Wednesday.
