The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has published the
the final list of candidates for the
Osun State Governorship election following the close of nominations by political parties.

The publication according to statement signed by INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, is
in compliance with the Electoral Act 2022.

Recall that on Friday 25th March 2022, INEC published the personal particulars and list of candidates (Form EC9) for the Osun State Governorship election in State and Local Government offices as required by law.

In Okoye’s words “The Commission wishes to remind political parties that under Section 32(2) of the Electoral Act 2022, any party that observes that the name of its candidate is missing from the list “shall notify the Commission in writing, signed by its National Chairman and Secretary, supported with an affidavit not later than 90 days to the election.

“Furthermore, the attention of parties is drawn to Section 32(3) of the Electoral Act 2022, which provides that failure to notify the Commission “shall not be ground to invalidate the election.

“The final list is published in our State and Local Government offices in Osun State as well as our website and social media platforms for public information as required by law”.

The commission consequently enjoined Political parties to note the provision of the law for compliance.
