The Commission however urged any party that observes that the name of its candidate is missing from the list to notify the Commission in writing, duly signed by its National Chairman and Secretary, and accompanied with an affidavit not later than 90 days to the election.

Okoye further drew the attention of parties to Section 32(3) of the Electoral Act 2022, which states that failure to notify the Commission “shall not be ground to invalidate the election”.
