2023: INEC Gives Two Conditions For Parties To Change Nominated Candidates

2023: INEC Gives Two Conditions For Parties To Change Nominated Candidates (Updated: 1 month ago)


Nigeria's electoral body, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has listed two conditions for political parties to change nominated candidates or running mates of their presidential candidates.

INEC’s Commissioner on Information and Voter Education, Festus Okoye, disclosed this while appearing on Channels Television’s programme, Politics Today, on Friday.

“A political party cannot substitute a nominated candidate, except in two instances: if the nominated candidate dies. Or if the nominated candidate withdraws from the race.

“Any withdrawal must be accompanied by a letter written by the nominated candidate to the political party, indicating he has withdrawn from the race, along with a sworn affidavit sworn.

“The party will now forward same to INEC. And these are the documents of withdrawal, which will state who the replacements are.

“The issue of withdrawal is at the discretion of the nominated candidate and no one else,” Okoye said.
