Going by the dictates of the schedule, the 2019 presidential election is only 423 days away – Presidential and National Assembly elections for Saturday, 16th February.

Professor Mahmoud Yakubu, INEC chairman, made the disclosure at an induction retreat for Resident Electoral Commissioners in Uyo, Akwa Ibom.
The governorship, state assembly and area council elections in the Federal Capital Territory will follow on March 2, 2019, Yakubu said.

The implementation of the 2019 Election Project Plan is to begin on January 1, 2018.

He said an additional 3,630,529 voters were registered in the recent continuous registration.
