No Final List of Candidates From INEC on Sunday 8th January

INEC says no final list of candidates was released on Sunday, 8th January, 2023 as reported in some sections of the media. 


INEC in a statement by its national commissioner for information, Festus Okoye notes that  no new publication of the final list of candidates was released as reported. The public should therefore be disregarded. 


For the record, the final list of candidates for the 2023 General Election was published at least 150 days before the election, that's on the 20th September 2022 while that of Governorship and State Assembly elections was published two weeks later on 4th October 2022.


There cannot be a final list of candidates with just 46 days to the General Election except for names published as substitutions for candidates nominated earlier in compliance with Court Order. The statement added. 


Political parties, litigants and the public should be guided accordingly.
