Electoral Commissioner (REC) Prof Chukwuemeka Onukogu made the announcement in a statement issued in Awka on Saturday.
The statement, signed by the Public Relations Officer Frank Egbo said the rescheduling was due to “challenges of logistics” in the areas.

“Any inconveniences are highly regretted,” the statement added. Onukogu said the rescheduled election will hold at Obosi Registration Area, Ward 07.

The election will hold between 8am and 12.30pm.

INEC urged all parties to get ready for the poll.

The disenfranchisement of voters marred the election in Idemili North and South Local Government Areas due to lack of voting materials, incomplete voters’ registers, and lack results sheets.

In centres where over 600 people registered, only about 100 or less  found  their names in the registers.

Some of the voters were told that additional list containing more names of registered persons would be brought, but none came.
