Ahead of the 2019 general election, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has warned political parties and its flag bearers to desist from every form of campaign before the official commencement date.

The chairman of the commission, Mahmood Yakubu, made this known in his speech at the workshop for election professionals from the Commonwealth Africa Region organised by the Commonwealth in partnership with the commission.

Going by the provisions of the Electoral Act and the Timetable and Schedule of Activities issued by the commission, campaign for Presidential and National Assembly elections should commence on November 18 while Governorship and State Assembly elections should start on December 1.

Mr Yakubu called for strict adherence to this timetable by political parties and candidates.
