INEC Publishes List Of Osun Governorship Candidates On Friday...See the list of political parties that failed to comply


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will publish the names of candidates for the Osun State governorship election on Friday.

INEC said this in a statement issued by its National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye.

“The Commission would on Friday 25th March 2022 publish in its state and local government offices in Osun State the list and personal particulars of the candidates that political parties propose to sponsor at the election. These must be aspirants who emerged from valid primaries in line with Section 29 of the Electoral Act 2022,” he said in the statement released on Friday.

“The Commission will publish the list and personal particulars of the candidates of 15 out of the 18 parties that conducted primaries. The nominations of the Action Alliance (AA); African Democratic Congress (ADC) and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) will not be published for their failure to comply with the Commission’s Guidelines on Political Party Operations (2018) or the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended).

“The AA did not submit a nomination jointly signed by the chairman and secretary of the party while the ADC and APGA nominated candidates that do not meet the age requirements for the office of deputy governor as enshrined in the Constitution. The Commission has already communicated this position officially to the affected political parties”
