The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has released the schedule of activities for the 2023 general election.
Mahmood Yakubu, INEC chairman, gave the breakdown on Saturday at a media briefing in Abuja.
According to him, the presidential election was initially scheduled to hold on February 18, while governorship polls were fixed for March 4, but the dates had to be reviewed following the signing of the electoral act amendment bill.
However, with the latest announcement, political parties are expected to begin collection of forms from INEC from March 1, 2022.
It was gathered that members of the community were wailing, while corpses littered the compound.
