INEC Gives Deadline For Submission Of Names


The Independent Electoral Commission, INEC, has announced May 20, 2024 as deadline for political parties contesting in the forthcoming Ondo State governorship election, to submit names of their candidates.

This was made known on Monday by the INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, during a consultative meeting with political party leaders ahead of the 2024 Edo and Ondo States governorship elections.

Yakubu stated that parties were expected to finalise and submit the names of their candidates before May 20, adding that there will be no extension of time.

This, according to him, is when the portal for candidates in the forthcoming Ondo governorship election will close.

The INEC boss said: “Turning to Ondo State, political parties have just concluded their primaries. Eighteen (18) political parties conducted primaries monitored by the Commission. I wish to remind you that parties have one week to the deadline for the nomination of candidates which is 6.00pm on Monday 20th May 2024 when the portal automatically shuts down. I urge you to adhere strictly to the deadline. Political parties have been given 23 days (over three weeks) from the end of primaries to prepare and submit the list of only two candidates (Governorship candidate and running mate) to the Commission. There will be no extension of time.”
