Mahmood Yakubu, emphasised on Tuesday. Yakubu bared his mind in Abuja during the first quarterly meeting of INEC with political parties in 2022. Electronic transmission of election results and compulsory direct primaries for political parties are among the amendments proposed by the national assembly. According to him, the Commission was looking forward to speedy passage of the Bill. Prof Mahmood Yakub Abbas Jimoh Tue, 18 Jan 2022 20:11:16 GMT The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it will not release the timetable for 2023 General elections until the Electoral Act amendment bill is passed into law. He said that the Commission would release the timetable for 2023 elections immediately the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd. Advertisement He said it’s disappointing to experience such back and forth on the bill even though the president and the leadership of the national assembly belong to the same party.), signs the Electoral Amendment Bill into law. He said, “Give INEC the law to begin the preparations for the 2023 elections.

“On the Electoral Amendment Bill currently before the National Assembly, the Commission is encouraged by the Senate President’s assurance to give priority attention to the Bill when the National Assembly reconvenes from its recess today, and the commitment by the President to assent to the Bill as soon as the issue of mode of primaries by political parties is resolved. Almost everything about that bill smells progress. Nigeria to launch new satellite this year He said the commission was looking forward to a speedy passage of the bill, which will determine its preparation for the 2023 General Elections. “We look forward to a speedy passage of the Bill, which is crucial to our preparations for future elections. As soon as it is signed into law, the commission will quickly release the timetable and schedule of activities for the 2023 general election based on the new law,” Yakubu said. I see those provisions as incremental steps,” he said. The INEC chairman said that the year 2022 was going to be a very busy year for the Commission and the political parties, with the 2023 general election just 396 days away, adding that all the critical preparations must be concluded this year. As soon as it is signed into law, the commission will quickly release the Timetable and Schedule of Activities for the 2023 General Election based on the new law,” Yakubu said. On the Continuous Voter Registration, Yakubu said that as at Monday January 17, a total of 8,260,076 eligible Nigerians commenced the online pre-registration, completed the registration physically or applied for transfer to new voting locations, replacement of their Permanent Voters’ Cards or updated their voter information records as required by law. Advertisement “Everything rises and falls on leadership; leadership at the executive arm and in the legislature.” Jega also noted that members of the National Assembly “perceive or know for a fact that governors manipulate indirect primaries,” and are looking for a way to liberate the primaries.

He said, “The commission has been publishing weekly progress reports of the exercise. We are aware that Nigerians want to know when their PVCs will be available for collection. “People with disabilities are included in the process, including that you must submit the names of your nominees 180 days before the election. He said, “The commission has been publishing weekly progress reports of the exercise. At the moment, the Commission is undertaking the most comprehensive cleaning up of the data to ensure that only eligible citizens are added to the voters’ register for the 2023 general election and will share our findings with Nigerians and the actual dates for the collection of the PVCs nationwide will be announced very soon.” The INEC chairman advised political parties to continue to encourage eligible voters who have not registered to do so, bearing in mind that those who had registered at any time previously need not register again. “So, Mr President has pointed out these issues of direct or indirect primaries. He said, “Turning to the major end-of-tenure and off-cycle elections, party primaries for the Ekiti State governorship election are scheduled for January 4 to 29, 2022.” The INEC Chairman urged the political parties to continue to encourage eligible voters who have not registered to do so, bearing in mind that those who had registered at any time previously need not register again.

For the Osun State governorship election, primaries will hold from February 16 to March 12, 2022. “I think that we can be forgiven when we conclude if this is a smokescreen of some sort and that there is a spanner thrown in the works to keep us in the moment, so that we will stay with the present dispensation, because this is something that could easily have been fixed. In the case of Ekiti State, all the 18 political parties have served the mandatory notices for the primaries. “Let me seize this opportunity to draw the attention of parties to the necessity for transparent and rancour-free primaries. If our leaders are interested in the progress for the people and for the nation, these are house issues that could have been sorted out by those in the arms of affairs in both arms of government. Today, we're asking that you support us to do more. Parties should also respect their chosen dates for the primaries based on the Commission’s timetable and schedule of activities. “Already, many parties have rescheduled their primaries several times. Take out those provisions; we can deal with that further down the road.

While the commission has earmarked a period of three weeks and four days (that is 25 days) for the conduct of the Ekiti State governorship primaries, virtually all political parties have decided to hold their primaries in the last four days January 26 to 29, 2022. In fact, seven political parties have chosen the last day for their primaries.”.” Yakubu said that no party had so far submitted its list of aspirants, the composition of its electoral panel, or the register of members or list of delegates depending on the chosen mode for electing its candidates adding that, only one party has indicated the venue for its primaries. He told the political parties to do so immediately to enable the Commission to work out the detailed plans for monitoring the primaries. Read Also .
