The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it has distributed sensitive materials across the 23 local government areas of Benue in readiness for Saturday’s supplementary polls.

Mr Terkaa Andyarigeria, the INEC Public Relations Officer (PRO) in the state, disclosed this in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Makurdi.

The News Agency of (NAN) gathered that the March 23 Governorship Supplementary Election will hold in 22 out of the 23 local government areas of the State.

NAN reports that the only local government area in the state where the governorship supplementary election will not be holding is Katsina-Ala.

However, the supplementary election for the state House of Assembly will hold in Katsina-Ala and nine other local government areas of the state.

Even where the supplementary elections will be taking place, not the entire local government areas will be participating, but only places where elections didn’t take place at all or where elections were cancelled.
