The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has set May 15th as the deadline for submission of the names of the candidates and the political parties’ running mates for the July 14th governorship elections.
Last Wednesday, Col. Austin Akobondu (retd.), National Organizing Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), revealed this while handing over the nomination form to the party’s governorship candidate, Prof. Kolapo Olusola in Abuja.
According to him, the candidate must also give the same form to his running mate. He urged that both candidates must submit their forms to the national secretariat by next Monday.
“The Independent National Electoral Commission has given us May 15 deadline within which all the political parties must submit the names of their governorship candidates. Therefore, you (Olusola) must submit your form and that of your running mate to us latest by Monday. If you don’t have a running mate, I’m available, please. But let the forms get to us on time as stated,” he said.
