The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu has said that the aborted Ekiti bye-election has been suspended indefinitely.
The House of Assembly election held on 20 March was halted due to violence. Yakubu said the suspension of the bye-election would now be permanent at a press conference held in Abuja.
“If the purpose of election is to kill, the election will remain suspended indefinitely. And when I mean indefinitely, I mean indefinitely.”
Recall that the bye-election turned bloody as suspected political thugs unleashed mayhem on voters and security agents where three voters were reportedly died.
The senator representing Ekiti South narrowly escaped from being killed.
