INEC Fixes Date for Anambra Governorship Election

Festus Okoye, INEC National Commissioner and Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee (IVEC), said this on Tuesday at the end of the committee’s management meeting.

According to him, on Tuesday, 19 January, the Commission met and deliberated on a wide range of issues, including the issue of a timeline and a schedule of activities for the election of the Governor of Anambra.

He claimed that, pursuant to Sections 178(1) and (2) of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) and Sections 25(7) and (8) of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended), the election of the Governor of the State shall take place no earlier than 150 days and no later than 30 days before the expiry of the term of office of the last occupant of the post.

The term of office of the Governor of the State of Anambra shall expire legally and by law on 17 March 2022 and the earliest date for election to the office of Governor of the State of Anambra shall be 18 October 2021 and the latest date for election shall be 15 February 2022.’

‘In exercising the powers bestowed on it by the Constitution, by the Electoral Act and by all the other powers enabling it to do so, the Commission has set 6 November 2021 as the date for the election of the Governorship of the State of Anambra.’

“Accordingly, the Commission hereby issues the schedule and schedule of election activities,” Okoye said.

He claimed that INEC will issue the statutory Notice for Elections on 9 June 2021 in accordance with the timetable and schedule of activities.

He added that on 10 June 2021 the selection of Forms EC9 (formerly CF001) and EC9B (formerly CF002) for the election will take place and on 10 June-1 July 2021 the conduct of the party primaries and the resolution of the conflicts resulting from the primaries will take place.

Okoye said the candidates’ personal details would be released on 16 July 2021 and campaigns will begin on 8 August 2021 for the parties.

He said the final list of candidates nominated would be released on October 7th, 2021.

He advised all registered political parties to pay careful attention to the timelines and schedule of activities as they are legislative and statutory requirements outlined in the Timetable and Schedule of Activities.

We also order political parties to carry out rancour-free primaries, to guarantee a level playing field for all candidates and to carry out the required due diligence on all forms and documents to be presented to the Commission.

Okoye said, “The Commission is concerned about the spate of acrimonious primaries as well as the nomination of unqualified candidates, leading to avoidable litigation, and the nullification by the Election Petition Tribunals of the elections.”
