The Residents Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Bauchi state, Alhaji Ibrahim Abdullahi has said that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) would conduct a rerun governorship election in 15 affected local government areas Saturday, saying election would not hold in Tafawa Balewa local government, pending the decision of the Court.

“On Saturday 23rd, rerun elections will be held in 15 local government areas, 29 registration areas and wards. This includes 36 polling units and 22,759 Registered Voters in all.

“Since the court order received by the commission only affects governorship collation of Tafawa Balewa local government area, the commission has concluded arrangements to conduct elections in other areas where elections were either canceled or not held at all”, Abdullahi said.
