The Independent National Electoral Commission has postponed Saturday’s governorship and Houses of Assembly elections in Butura Ward in Bokkos Local Government Area of Plateau to Sunday, due to logistics problem.
The state INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr Oliver Agundu, disclosed this while speaking with newsmen in Jos on Saturday.
Agundu said that election materials such as ballot papers meant for the ward were taken to another LGA in error.
He said that in order not to disenfranchise members of the community, the election in the area would now hold on Sunday, March 19.
He regretted any inconveniences caused by the delay and eventual shift of the election.
He urged members of the community to come out in their numbers to exercise their franchise.
