The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed February 3, 2024, for the conduct of by-elections resulting from the resignation or demise of members of the national and state houses of assemblies.

In a statement on Friday, Sam Olumekun, INEC national commissioner and chairman, information voter education committee, said the vacancies were declared by the presiding officers of the assemblies.

Olumekun said the vacancies occurred across two senatorial districts, four federal constituencies, and three state constituencies in nine states.

“Furthermore, the Commission is conducting re-run elections stemming from the 2023 General Election, as directed by various Election Petition Appeal Tribunals. Currently, 35 Constituencies are affected by these Court-ordered elections. While three cover entire constituencies, others involve only a few Polling Units,” the statement reads.


“Both categories of elections are scheduled to take place simultaneously in all affected constituencies on Saturday 3rd February 2024.

“The Timetable for the elections, along with detailed delimitation data (i.e. registration areas, polling unit names, the number of registered voters and PVCs collected), has been uploaded to our website and social media platforms as a guide to political parties and candidates, and for public information.

“We urge parties and candidates to strictly adhere to the specified timelines for the seamless conduct of these elections.”
