The chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor Mahmood Yakubu is meeting with political parties in Abuja. The meeting which is held quarterly is in preparations towards the Kogi and Bayelsa governorship elections slated to hold in November.
The meeting is also expected to review the performances of political parties during the elections and provide solutions to issues raised. It will be recalled that there had been some agitations among political parties about the call to scrap parties that failed to elect at least a candidate during the last elections.
Chairman of the commission while explaining the decision to combine the Senatorial re-run in Kogi and bye-election in Bayelsa state, said it is more economical.
