Gaidam said that the postponement became necessary following the death of a member of the assembly, who was the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the election.

“We received a letter from the party and the House of Assembly regarding the death of the candidate and we have replied, giving them one week to find a replacement.

“We will communicate their replacement to the headquarters to fix a new date for the election,” Gaidam said.
