States where gubernatorial elections would not hold today are Anambra, Bayelsa, Edo, Ekiti, Kogi, Ondo and Osun.

Anambra

The incumbent governor, Willie Obiano, was sworn in March 2014, after the expiration of the tenure of former governor, Peter Obi.

The election that brought Obiano to office was conducted in November 2013.

The next governorship election in the state will be in 2017.

Bayelsa

The Governor of Bayelsa State, Hon. Seriake Dickson, was sworn in February, 2012, after securing victory at the governorship poll as ordered by the Supreme Court.

For this reason, the next governorship election in the state is expected to hold later in the year or in January, 2016.

Edo

Following the Court of Appeal’s judgment that upheld the decision of Edo State Election Petition Tribunal that earlier declared Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, candidate of the then Action Congress (AC), as the winner of the 2007 governorship election in the state, the then governor, Prof. Oserheimen Osunbor, who was the candidate of PDP vacated the position and Oshiomhole took over as governor in November, 2008.

Oshiomhole also won the governorship election for second term in 2012 and will complete his second term in office in 2016.

Ekiti

The next governorship election in Ekiti State would hold in 2018 when the incumbent governor, Ayodele Fayose, who was elected on June 21, 2014, will complete his four-year tenure in office.

Kogi

The governor of Kogi State, Idris Wada, was sworn in January 27, 2012 following the Supreme Court ruling that sacked five governors from office, including the then governor of the state, Ibrahim Idris. ImmediatelyWada was sworn in having won the governorship elections conducted on December 3, 2011.

The next governorship election in the state has been fixed for December 2015.

Ondo

Governor Olusegun Mimiko will complete his second term in office in 2016.

Osun

Like its Ekiti State counterpart, the Governor of Osun State, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, who got the second term mandate last year is expected to be in the saddle till 2018.

It's time to reshape and redefine Lagos state from the hands of cronies. Tinubu has eaten enough, Lagos doesn't belong to him, we are not slaves.

UPDATE: •INEC laments, postpones State Assembly polls in 8 constituencies of Bayelsa

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed the State House of Assembly election in eight of the 24 constituencies of Bayelsa.

Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Bayelsa, Mr. Baritor Kpagih, said in a statement yesterday that the postponement became inevitable after pirates disrupted the distribution of election materials to coastal areas in the state, thus adversely affecting the conduct of today’s elections in the affected areas.

According to the REC, the affected councils are Ekeremor Constituencies 1, 2, and 3, Kolokuma/Opokuma Constituencies 1 and 2, Sagbama Constituencies 1 and 2 and Southern Ijaw Constituency 1.
