INEC Okays Electoral Campaigns for Political Parties

The electoral commission, INEC, has approved that campaigns continue ahead of Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections.

The commission had earlier on Saturday during the press conference with stakeholders said campaign has stopped forthwith. But both the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC , and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has argued vehemently that campaign should continue if only to reassure their supporters not to lose hope despite the postponement.

The National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiohmole said he was disgusted by the reasons given by the INEC chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakub at the party caucus meeting on Monday in Abuja.

Osita Chidoka, who represents the national chairman of the PDP , Uche Secondus at the meeting sought clarification if the party should continue his campaign till midnight on Thursday 21,2019.

The electoral act 2010 as amended provides that campaign should stop on the midnight of Thursday preceding the election.

The INEC chairman who appeared traumatized during the stakeholders meeting may be oblivious of this rule. It was therefore a relief when he announced on Monday night that political parties can resume its campaign till Thursday.
