The Independent National Electoral Commission, lNEC, in Lagos State has published the notice of the Surulere Federal Constituency I bye-election as required by law.

INEC Public Affairs Officer in Lagos State, Mrs Adenike Oriowo, told newsmen on Friday that the notice was pasted on Thursday at the commission’s headquarters in Sabo-Yaba for public viewing.

“The notice has also been posted at the commission’s Surulere Local Government Area Office,” she added.


According to her, INEC had begun the implementation of activities and the timetable for the elections.

The spokesperson also added that INEC’s preparations were on top gear to ensure strict adherence to relevant laws and guidelines for the poll.

She explained that the commission will not fail to deliver a credible bye-election in the constituency.

DAILY POST recalls that INEC had fixed Feb. 3, 2024, for the conduct of re-run and by-elections in nine states, including Surulere Federal Constituency in Lagos State.

According to the timetable for the poll, the conduct of party primary elections including resolution of disputes that may arise from the primary elections has been fixed to hold between Jan. 5 and Jan. 9.

The public campaigns by political parties will commence on Jan. 18 and end on Feb. 1.

The Surulere seat became vacant due to the resignation of the former occupant, Rep. Femi Gbajabiamila, who after winning, was appointed by President Bola Tinubu as his Chief of Staff.
