The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Edo, Mr. Mike Igini, said on Monday that the National Assembly election for Orhionmwon which was cancelled would hold on Saturday, April 11.

He announced the new date in Benin while addressing newsmen.

It would be recalled that the March 28 National Assembly election was cancelled due to non-availability of electoral materials including result sheets.

Igini said: “Quite a number of challenges which arose during the March 28 elections and were brought to our attention by the public have been acknowledged.

“I will be meeting with electoral officers after this conference to review the outcome of the March 28 polls.

“Lessons learnt will be used in planning for Saturday’s State House of Assembly elections.”

The Edo REC warned electoral officers against violating the commission’s electoral procedure.

“The April 11 election is going to be more challenging because it involves representation at the grass root level.

“As such a breach of electoral procedures would not be tolerated; reactions would be swift and immediate if there are any,” he stressed. (NAN)
