The affected states were governorship election will not go on are Anambra, Bayelsa, Edo, Ekiti, Kogi, Ondo and Osun states.

Meanwhile, the State Houses of Assembly elections will be conducted in all the 36 states.

The FCT will not witness both elections because it is run by a minister, who is appointed by the President, with laws made by the National Assembly.

But Saturday will witness the election of new chairmen and councillors in the six Area Councils of the territory, namely Abaji, Abuja Municipal, Bwari, Gwagwalada, Kuje and Kwali.
