Don’t start campaigns yet, INEC warns Buhari, Atiku, other candidates

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has warned candidates and political parties not to start campaigns yet.
The chairman of the commission, Mahmood Yakubu, made this known on Monday in his speech at the workshop for election professionals from the Commonwealth Africa Region organised by the Commonwealth in partnership with the commission.

“Let me also remind political patties and candidates that the end of primaries does not mean the immediate commencement of campaigns. Section 99(1) prohibits campaigns by political parties earlier than 90 days before polling day,” he said.

Going by the provisions of the Electoral Act and the Timetable and Schedule of Activities issued by the commission, campaign for Presidential and National Assembly elections should commence on November 18 while Governorship and State Assembly elections should start on December 1.
