Plateau Local Government Elections has been postponed again to February 25, 2014.
The elections were initially fixed for December 7, 2013. They were postponed to January 21, and later to January 30.
A statement from the Plateau State Independent Electoral Commission (PLASIC) said explained that “the shift was occasioned by unexpected difficulties encountered in the production of critical election materials by the producer which is taking more time than initially allocated.”
The last time local government elections were held in Plateau was on November 28, 2008. The election then is believed to be the one of the major causes of violence in the state.
