Chairperson of KADSIECOM, Dr Saratu Dikko-Audu, had announced the date on February 9, during a meeting with political parties and relevant stakeholders in the polls.

The election timetable was announced after the State House of Assembly passed a bill to allow the use of electronic machines for voting during the elections.

The poll was earlier scheduled to hold in December 2017 but was cancelled indefinitely due to delay in the approval of the use of an electronic voting system by the state Assembly.
