The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has warned all political parties wishing to participate in the 2019 general election that the deadline for electing their candidates remains October 7.

INEC gave the warning on Thursday after its weekly meeting, in Abuja.

The warnings were issued on Thursday by INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr. Solomon Soyebi.

INEC wishes to restate that the conduct of primaries and resolution of all disputes arising therefrom must be concluded on or before October 7 as earlier published in the Timetable and Schedule of Activities for the 2019 general election.

“The last day for submission of lists of sponsored candidates (Form CFOO2) and personal particulars (Form CF001) remains October 18 for Presidential and National Assembly and November 2 for Governorship and State Houses of Assembly,” he said.
