The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) hosts coordinated the 15 political gatherings in Edo State, to guarantee their primaries are led inside the following 10 days.

INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, expressed this during the second virtual gathering of the Inter-office Consultative Committee on Election Security (ICCES), on Wednesday in Abuja.

Yakubu cautioned that the commission would not expand the plan for any gathering that passes up the cutoff time.

“Turning to the Edo Governorship election, all political parties interested in fielding candidates for the election are reminded that they must conclude their primaries for the nomination of candidates in the next 10 days. The deadline is Saturday 27th June 2020.

“I must stress that the date is firm and fixed. There will be no extension of the deadline,” he said.

Yakubu added that parties must submit the details of their candidates for the governorship poll by 6pm on June 29.
