The Independent National Electoral Commission has permitted the resumption of campaign activities by political parties.
In a statement signed by INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr Festus Okoye, the electoral body said it approved that campaigns can resume.
“In the meanwhile, after consultation with the political parties, the Commission has approved that campaigns by parties and candidates can resume forthwith to end by midnight of Thursday, 21st February 2019.”
Campaigns were put on hold a day before the election scheduled for February 16. However, the election was postponed by INEC, few hours before Nigerians were to cast their vote. Following the postponement to February 23, the political parties argued for the resumption of political campaigns.
