“Furthermore, and as required by law, the particulars of the nominated candidates will be published in the Edo State office of the Commission and simultaneously uploaded on our website on Thursday, July 2, 2020.

“We encourage members of the public to go through the nomination forms, affidavits and documents submitted by the parties on behalf of their candidates, as any person who has reasonable grounds to believe that any information in the affidavit or any document submitted by any candidate is false, may file a suit at the Federal High Court, High Court of a State or the FCT against such a candidate seeking a declaration that the information contained in the affidavit is false.

“The final list of duly nominated candidates will be published on August 13, 2020, after withdrawals by candidates and substitution by their political parties.”

The National commissioner reminded parties that primaries for the Ondo Governorship election that will commence on July 2 and end on July 25, 2020, insisting that the last date for the submission of the names of duly nominated candidates is July 28, 2020.

“The Commission will like to take this opportunity to again draw the attention of all political parties, candidates, aspirants and supporters on the need to obey all Laws, Regulations and Guidelines, especially in their campaigns. Equally important is the need for strict adherence to the COVID-19 protocol”, he added.
