INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr. Festus Okoye, who disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday, April 12, said only 15 out of the 18 political parties would participate in the poll.

Okoye said the publication of the final list was due to the close of nominations by parties and in compliance with the Electoral Act 2022.

He said: “The Commission wishes to remind political parties that under Section 32(2) of the Electoral Act 2022, any party that observes that the name of its candidate is missing from the list “shall notify the commission in writing, signed by its National Chairman and Secretary, supported with an affidavit not later than 90 days to the election.”

“Furthermore, the attention of parties is drawn to Section 32(3) of the Electoral Act 2022, which provides that failure to notify the Commission shall not be ground to invalidate the election.

“The final list is published in our state and local government offices in Osun State as well as our website and social media platforms for public information as required by law.”

The list shows that Senator Ademola Adeleke of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Governor Gboyega Oyetola of the All Progressives Congress (APC), and 13 other candidates — all male — are vying for the governorship position.

However, there are six female candidates vying for the position of deputy governor.
