Borno to hold Council election, November 28


The Borno State Independent Electoral Commission (BOSIEC) says elections into local government councils in Borno State will hold on November 28, 2020.

The electoral body also said all political activities in the state could now commence preparatory to the election.

The election which was earlier scheduled to hold in June had to be suspended because of COVID-19.

Addressing a press conference on Monday, the Chairman of BOSIEC, Alhaji Abdu Usman said November 28 has been fixed for the elections into the 27 councils of the state.

“I have the singular honour and privilege to address you today (Monday) on the resumption of political activities in Borno State.
