#PlateauDecides2019: Live updates of governorship & state assembly elections

 
Today, Saturday, March 9, Nigerians across the states will be trooping out to elect new governors and state legislators that will pilot the affairs of the state for the next four years.

Only 29 states will be electing governors today, though the state House of Assembly elections will be conducted in all the 36 states of the federation. Seven of the states won’t be voting for governors because their own elections took place “off season”.
The states are Osun, Ekiti, Edo, Anambra, Kogi, Ondo, Bayelsa and FCT Abuja.
As Nigerians come out en masse to cast their votes, Matthewtegha Blog will be bringing live updates, breaking news and results from all the polling units within Plateau state and in some parts of Nigeria. Voting commences at 8am. Follow our live updates here.
