Ahead of the conduct of supplementary elections in some parts of the country on Saturday, March 23, 2019, a member of Kogi House of Assembly, Hon. Paul Friday Sani has requested the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to release details of wards/polling units where the election would take place in Igalamela/Odolu State constituency.
