According to the commission, the Candidates Nomination Portal will shut down at 6pm on July 15, 2022.
As noted in a statement by its National Commissioner in charge of the Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr Festus Okoye, the decision was taken on Thursday at a meeting of the commission.
“By the Timetable and Schedule of Activities released by the commission, political parties that conducted valid governorship and state Assembly primaries shall upload the list and personal particulars of their nominated candidates between July 1 and 15, 2022.
“We urge political parties to scrutinise the list and personal particulars of the candidates they propose to sponsor at the election to avoid any mix-up and duplication of names,” says Okoye.
The commissioner, however, enjoined political parties not to wait until the last day before uploading the list and personal particulars of their candidates.
