THE Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) will on Saturday 30th March 2024 publish the personal particulars of the governorship candidates and their running mates in compliance with Section 29(3) of the Electoral Act 2022.

Sam Olumekun, National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee of INEC, in a statement, said at the conclusion of party primaries, seventeen (17) political parties uploaded their candidates’ nomination forms for the election by the deadline of 6.00 pm on 24th March 2024 when the dedicated portal automatically shut down. 

Mr Sam maintains that the Commission will publish the personal particulars by displaying copies of Form EC9 along with all academic credentials and other documents submitted by each candidate at the state headquarters and the 18 local government offices across Edo State.

The Commission appealed to Nigerians to scrutinise the documents pointing out that any aspirant who participated in his/her party primaries with reasonable grounds to believe that the information provided by the candidate is false can challenge the nomination in a Federal High Court as provided in Section 29(5) of the Electoral Act 2022.

The Edo State governorship election is scheduled to be held on Saturday 21st September 2024.
