Bye-Election: LP Releases Timetable, Pegs Senate Form At N3.5m, Reps N2m, Assembly N.5m

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Labour Party (LP) has approved fees for the purchase of nomination and expression of interest forms, timetable and schedule of activities for February 3, 2024 by elections as announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

According to a statement by the National Secretary of the party, Umar Ibrahim, the purchase of nomination, expression of interest and delegate forms commences from December 28 to January 4, 2024 while submission of completed forms ends on January 4, 2024. The primary would be held on January 7, 2024.

This was disclosed, in the statement, by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, yesterday.

Ifoh said: “The party’s leadership also approved fees for both the expression of interest and nomination forms respectively as follows: Senate N1.5 million and N3.5 million; House of Representatives N1 million and N2 million: House of Assembly N100,000 and N500,000.

“It also exempted female and Persons Living with Disabilities (PWDs) Aspirants from payment of fees for the expression of interest forms only.”

He further said the attention of the leadership of the party had also been drawn to a fake timetable in circulation released by some expelled members of the party seeking to defraud unsuspecting public of their hard earned money through sales of fake forms.

“Just like they did and failed in Imo, Bayelsa and Kogi states governorship elections where some people fell into their trap and were defrauded, we wish to state clearly that the timetable from these fraudsters did not emanate from the Labour Party and that the so-called account number in circulation is not known to the party. We warn that people should disregard the fraudulent group.

“The forms for the by-election can be obtained at the office of the national organising secretary, national headquarters, No. 2, IBM Haruna Street, Utako, Abuja, where the proper accounts belonging to the party and other vital information regarding the coming elections will be made available to the aspirants and the public,” he said.
