INEC receives 1.6 million inquiries on primaries’ details
July 14, 2022
The Independent National Electoral Commission says it has received over 1.6 million inquiries on the details of party primaries.
This is just as the commission revealed that the New Nigeria People’s Party and the African Action Congress are yet to upload any nomination for state elections on the commission’s portal barely a day to the deadline.
According to INEC’s guidelines, any party that fails to upload the nomination of its candidates will take part in the elections.
In a statement on Wednesday by its National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education, Festus Okoye, INEC said all parties must note that the portal will automatically shut down by 6:00pm on Friday.
The commission added that 6,995 nominations have been uploaded by 16 of the 18 political parties.
