With just four days left to the March 24 deadline political parties to conclude their nomination of governorship and deputy governorship candidates for the September 21, 2024 election in Edo State, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC says only six of the 18 registered political parties have filed their nominations.

INEC chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu disclosed this yesterday. He cautioned political parties against granting unnecessary waivers to new entrants and offering them their tickets, saying such development has continued to put a lot of litigation costs on INEC.

The chairman told parties seeking participation in the election that the Commission would not extend the March 24 timeline for the nomination of their candidates.

Yakubu spoke at the first regular quarterly consultative meeting with political parties.

“Already, party primaries for the Edo State governorship election have been concluded. By the timetable and schedule of activities for the election, political parties have 20 days to upload the list and personal particulars of their candidates to our dedicated portal,” Yakubu said.
