INEC chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, said this at a press briefing with major stakeholders on Saturday.
The electoral chief spoke while reacting to a question by Osita Chidoka, a representative of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The former Minister had requested for campaigns, which ended Thursday night.
He wanted parties and candidates to continue to speak about their programmes and policies till the rescheduled dates for the polls.
In his response, the chairman said, “No, political actors are to remain silent.”
