The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed Saturday 15th April 2023 for supplementary Governorship elections in Adamawa and Kebbi States,  while 5 Senatorial Districts, 31 Federal and 58 State Assembly constituencies whose elections were not concluded will also be held same time in a few polling units in some constituencies.
This is due to the competitive nature of the elections, especially for legislative seats
A statement by  Barr. Festus Okoye INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee
on Monday 27th March 2023 said “The Commission met today Monday 27th March 2023 and reviewed the areas where supplementary elections are required to conclude the outstanding Governorship, National and State Assembly elections across the country.
“It will be recalled that 26 State Governorship, 104 Senatorial, 329 Federal, and 935 State constituency elections have been concluded and winners declared.
“A comprehensive list of the polling units by State, Local Government, Registration Area, registered voters,d PVCs collected will be published on our website on or before Wednesday 29th March 2023.”
 
The Commission, therefore, appealed to political parties and their supporters to be guarded by electoral laws while noting that elections are not war. 
 
“We appeal to all political parties, candidates, and stakeholders to note the date and locations of the supplementary elections. The earlier accreditation for polling and collation agents, observers, and the media still subsists for the supplementary elections.
 
“The Commission once again urges political parties, candidates, and their supporters to see the exercise as an election and not war. “They should avoid incendiary statements and negative mobilization so that the elections can be conducted and concluded as scheduled.” the statement ended.
