“Based on these consultations, the Commission believes that security in the affected states has improved while the environmental challenges have reasonably abated, consequently, the Commission has decided to hold all the pending bye-elections on Saturday, December 5, 2020.

“We appeal to voters and stakeholders in the states with pending by-elections to continue to cooperate with the Commission in its efforts to deliver credible elections under a safe environment.”
