The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) released the timetable for the 2015 general elections in the night of January 24, 2014, Friday.

The Commission also announced the timetable for the conduct of the governorship election in both Ekiti and Osun States. Both states have early elections.

In a three-paragraph statement INEC revealed that the presidential and National Assembly elections would come first.

Nigerians will elect the President, as well as the members of the national legislature, on February 14, 2015.

Elections for governors, as well as members of the 36 state houses of assembly, are scheduled for February 28, 2015.

The Ekiti State governorship election is to hold on June 21, 2014 while that of Osun State will hold on August 9, 2014.

It would be noted that INEC faces a major test and unprecedented challenge in conducting next year’s general elections.

The recent upheavals in the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, as well as a dramatic rise in the rhetoric of supporters and opponents of President Goodluck Jonathan, have provoked speculations that a rigged election could precipitate a level of post-poll violence that has not been witnessed in Nigeria in a long time.
