What The Electoral Acts Says About The Death Of a Candidate

The untimely death of APC governorship aspirant in Kogi state Prince Abubakar Audu, who is also leading in yesterday governorship election in Kogi state have thrown up issues of what next the election umpire INEC will do. The Nigeria constitution only made mention of death of elected candidate that is yet to be sworn in. The 2010 Electoral acts in section 36, states that

SECTION 36 - Death of a candidate - (1) If after the time for the delivery of nomination paper and before the commencement of the poll, a nominated candidate dies, the Chief National Electoral Commissioner or the Resident Electoral Commissioner shall, being satisfied of the fact of the death, countermand the poll in which the deceased candidate was to participate and the Commission shall appoint some other convenient date for the election within 14 days.
(2) The list of voters to be used at a postponed election shall be the official voters register, which was to be used if the election had not been postponed.

This is the closest the electoral acts states regarding Prince Abubakar Audu Death

The question is 'who is going to replace him at the pol?' will APC conduct a fresh primary election or will the running-mate replace him?

I thought those guys(e.g lasisi) that comment with 'end time' r childish. But with the way tins r turning out in this world now, it's fair to tag the Kogi election as:



END TIME ELECTION

@ op, I beg to disagree because the part of the constitution you quoted clearly state that before the commencement of the election but in kogi state's case

1. There is a legally conducted election

2. Even the dead candidate voted and his vote was counted


3. More than 90% of the election is conducted already


4. And don't forget the candidate and his deputy contested on a joint ticket and thank God the other partner on the ticket ( faleke) is alive and well

5. The votes were voted and recorded for the party and not in the candidate's name.

6. The election to be conducted is just a supplementary election which can never void the main election.


7. election been inconclusive is not same as been invalid.

Providence has ensured that a non Igala would govern Kogi cos going by the majority Igala stand that neither of the Ebira/Okun will be at the helms of affairs & would prefer a laggard Igala to a performing non Igala....

This can only come from powers beyond human comprehension.. cool
