2023: Lawan, Umahi, Akpabio know fate September 20


The trio of the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi and former Akwa Ibom State Governor, Godswill Akpabio will soon know if they will be All Progressives Congress, APC, candidates for the 2023 senatorial elections for their respective districts.

This is following the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, statement that it will publish the final list of candidates for presidential, senatorial and House of Representatives elections on September 20, 2023.

The INEC chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, disclosed this during an event tagged “expert meeting on conducting Nigeria’s 2023 general elections in volatile security environment” in Abuja.

The event was organised by the United Kingdom’s Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office in Nigeria, in collaboration with the Centre for Democracy and Development.
