The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has stated that it would hold a meeting with chairmen and secretaries of all registered political parties, to take the final decision on Saturday over the 2015 elections following advice from the National Council of State that it should discharge its “civic” responsibility and decide whether to go ahead with the general elections billed for February 14 and 28.

A statement Friday by Kayode Idowu, the spokesperson of INEC Chairman, Attahiru Jega, said after meetings, “the Commission will address a press conference to brief the nation on its decision with regard to whether or not the general elections will hold as currently scheduled”.

“As a follow-up to that meeting, the commission has scheduled a consultative meeting with chairmen and secretaries of all registered political parties, as well as a meeting with the resident electoral commissioners (RECs) on Saturday, February 7, 2015,”

Mr. Jega had on Thursday briefed the National Council of States on the preparedness of INEC to conduct the 2015 general elections. He informed the council that the commission was in a better position to conduct the election at present compared to the 2011 election.
