Don’t campaign before April 24, INEC warns Edo

The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Edo State, Dr. Anugbum Onuoha, has warned politicians against campaigning before April 24.

This is in line with the Electoral Act and timetable of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Onuoha gave the warning at his office in Benin at a news conference.

He reiterated that campaigns by the 16 political parties that would be participating in the September 21, 2024 election must be rounded off on September 19.

The REC who said officials of the commission monitored the primary, added that his report would be submitted to the Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, in Abuja,

He said: “Politicians have started campaigning in Edo State when INEC has not lifted the ban on public campaigns. The politicians must bring down their billboards and remove their banners and posters. The politicians must stop disrupting the peace of Edo State with their campaigns.

“I earlier met with leaders of the 16 participating political parties in Edo State, and told them that it was wrong to be campaigning before April 24, 2024.”
