The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced a schedule of activities for the governorship election in Kogi and Bayelsa States.
The commission had earlier on Thursday shifted the date for the Kogi and Bayelsa States governorship election from Nov. 2 to Nov. 16.
The Commission disclosed this in a statement issued by its National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr Festus Okoye on Thursday in Abuja.
The decision, according to Okoye, was taken at the commission’s regular weekly meeting held on Thursday, following several appeals received by INEC from critical stakeholders from Bayelsa, demanding for a change in the earlier fixed date.
However, according to the amended timetable and schedule of activities for the elections signed by Secretary to the Commission, Mrs Rose Oriaran-Anthony, the notice for the elections would be released on Aug. 17.
Collection of forms CF001 and CF002 by political parties from INEC for the elections would be on Aug. 18, while the conduct of parties primaries would hold from Aug. 18 to Sept 5, and election campaign would commenced by Aug. 18.
The commission also scheduled Oct. 2 as the last day for the submission of nomination forms by political parties and Nov. 14 as the last day for political campaigns.
