The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has said that it would not shift the November 26 governorship election in Ondo State.

This stance is taken by the electoral body despite the manner that it has injected itself into the intra-party crisis rocking the Peoples Democratic Party by ignoring legal advice and substituting the name of the PDP candidate in the final list for the Ondo guber poll.

There were rumours in Abuja on Wednesday, November 2, 2016 that one of the factions in the party was planning to mount pressure on the electoral body to shift the election and allow the ongoing judicial interventions concluded before the election could be conducted.
