INEC declares Fayose's campaign illegal

INEC declares Fayose's campaign illegal”

Mahmud Yakubu said on Tuesday in Abuja at the quarterly consultative meeting with the media that the actual budget for the 2019 election would be made public after the project plan is completed.

Chairman of the electoral body, Prof.

He hinged his position on Section 69 (b) of the 1999 Constitution, which provides a 90-day window within which a lawmaker could be recalled by his/her constituents.

Mr. Soyebi stated that the commission then approached the court for substituted service but was directed to make further attempts to serve the Senator but when those failed, INEC returned to the court to pursue the request for substituted service but that it declined jurisdiction in view of the appeal by the Senator in the Court of Appeal.

He said, "There was a pronouncement on Thursday last week on the matter and everything has been taken to the Court of Appeal". Mahmood Yakubu warned politicians and political parties to desist from campaigning ahead of the 2019 elections as the ban on campaigns still remained in effect.

Ekiti State Governor, Ayodele Fayose, had last week inaugurated his presidential campaign in Abuja, pasting his posters in various parts of the country while branded buses had also been deployed.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), has beamed its searchlight on the commission, as it is now probing its officials in 20 states for allegedly receiving bribe during the 2015 elections.

But the INEC chairman warned politicians and political parties against jumping the gun.

He said the commission had not released the schedule of activities for the elections.

"And anything that anybody does is illegal under the law".

The INEC boss urged politicians to wait for the time table of the elections.

It also prescribes a fine of N500,000 for anyone found guilty of doing so.
