Why Council Elections Will Not Hold Next Year—INEC

Why Council Elections Will Not Hold Next Year—INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has asked political parties and other stakeholders to avert their minds to the provisions of the Electoral Act 2022 (As Amended) with respect to the tenure of Area Council Chairmen in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.


According to the commission, the Act guarantees a four-year tenure for the Chairmen and Councillors, not the three years provided in the Electoral Act 2010.


INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu disclosed this at a meeting with the Inter-Party Advisory Council, IPAC, in Abuja.

He said the tenure of the current chairmen and councillors would lapse in June 2026.

Yakubu said the Commission had earlier received inquiries from some law firms, an individual, a political party and one FCT chairmanship aspirants’ forum regarding the tenure of the area councils.

He added that there was also a demand for the Commission to release the timetable and schedule of activities for the area council elections.
