Campaigns can begin in Edo, INEC
INEC has announced that campaigns can begin in Edo State. The Commission say that the ban on campaigns by political parties ahead of the September 19 governorship election in Edo State has been lifted.
Timidi Wariowei, the INEC Head of Voter Education in Edo State, said that campaigns have officially commenced in the state.
“Campaigns have officially started in the state. Campaigns start 90 days to the election date and it started on June 21.”
In addition, he said that the commission has made available some non-sensitive materials and distributed them to the 18 local government areas of the state.
“The reason we distributed the materials early is that the office we occupy now has a small storage capacity.
The storage facility cannot accommodate all the materials, so as the materials come we dispatch to our local government offices.
The non-sensitive materials we have received so far are not complete so as they come in batches we distribute because of lack of space to keep them.”
