Substitution of candidates: Unease in APC, PDP as INEC closes window

APC leader, Adams Oshiomole

There is unease in the parties as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) closes window of substitution of candidates for the 2019 governorship and state Assembly elections.

The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, has described the primaries as some of the “most acrimonious” in the nation’s recent history, resulting in the commission being joined in 396 pending cases across the country.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has officially confirmed the true status of some of its “controversial candidates” in respect of governorship positions.
