2019 Elections Campaign Officially Starts Tomorrow 18th November 2018

Political parties will kick off campaign nationwide tomorrow for all elective positions in line with the time table of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the 2019 elections.
This is coming on the heels of allegations by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation and the Minister of Transportation, Mr. Rotimi Amaechi had been using government fund to campaign for the President.

The electoral body, relying on the Constitution and the Electoral Act, had since January 9, 2018 released the time table and schedule of activities for the 2019 elections, and had stuck to the schedule despite immense pressure on it.
The Electoral Act, as amended, states in 99(I) that “For the purpose of this Act,
the period of campaigning in public by every political party shall commence 90 days before polling day and end 24 hours prior to that day.”

Thus, according to INEC’s time table, political parties would begin campaign for presidential, national and states assembly elections on November 18.
However, political parties, especially the PDP and the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) had been contravening the Electoral Act through their respective support groups, who had been sponsoring publications in newspapers, as well as promoting their candidates on campaign billboards.

On the other hand, the electoral umpire which ought to ensure that political parties abide by the Electoral Act had not been bold enough to wield the big stick.
With the campaign officially starting on Sunday, the presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar is billed to begin his campaign on Monday in Abuja with the launch of his policy document, which would contain how he intends to direct the affairs of the country if he gets into the saddle of leadership next year.

The presidential candidate is rounding off the composition of his campaign machinery, which would be a mix of the organisations that delivered him at the primary, the party and former aspirants’ structures.

GUYS, WHAT DO YOU THINK?

@Endy Edenson, the task before us is to choose wisely between two devil so we should opt for the better devil.
I vote Atiku.
Had it been the youths aspirants( Sowore, Moghalu, Fela Durotoye and so on) are united and presented a sole candidate for the youths, i would have support them but they all went apart due to their selfish interest.
