June 17, 2022, has been set aside as the deadline for presidential candidates to name their running mates.

The date was issued by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, which equally set a July 15 deadline for state elections.

INEC Chairman Prof. Mahmood Yakubu said this in a statement on the commission’s social media pages.

“Similarly, the list of all Presidential and Governorship candidates must be accompanied by the names of their running mates (i.e. Vice Presidential and Deputy Governorship candidates) without which the nomination is invalid.

“All nominations must be uploaded to the portal on/or before the deadlines. The portal will automatically shut down at 6.00 pm (1800hrs) on Friday 17th June 2022 for national elections and 6.00 pm (1800hrs) on Friday 15th July 2022 for State elections,” he added.
