If the presidential candidate dies before election date, the second runner is expected to take over ( Competent party should be able to hide the News of the Death till after the Election if they are not happy with the second runner), , but if the candidate dies during or after the election then the vice can take over.

On this sensitive issue INEC respect party decision


The options available

1. Second runner up

2. Vice candidate

3. Fresh primary


Any of the options above the party wish for if the candidate dies during or after the election, INEC will adopt it, using Kogi State as case study .

Alright, but is it constitutional ?

Between Obi that is relatively young, still visits the gym, travels across Nigeria in one day, looks healthy and clean and Tinubu, an old man that is suffering from Parkinson disease (a degenerative brain sickness), suffers from rectum and bladder sickness that makes him to pee and shiit on himself uncontrollably, who can't walk without being held by the hand, who do you think is likely to drop dead any moment?!

To whom brain is given, sense is expected!!
god of Biafra land is here, so you can decide who dies or who lives like Kanu, clap for yourself

Are you talking about Tinubu? grin



The irony of life is a lot of people mocking buhari and wishing him dead then are no more, be careful what you wish for others, age at times doesn't matter when death comes knocking.

Now that makes it even scarier. Imagine having someone like Shitima, a known Boko Haram patron as president. It would be same as having a Taliban regime shocked shocked
This is really terrible

See the case of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.
The flag bearer won the election and died. Bello from nowhere emerged as governor
I think that's why he doesn't know anything about governance?
Re: If A Presidential Candidate Dies Before Election Date, What Happens Next? by AKWATGOLD1(m): 11:54am On Aug 17, 2022
Let's quikly do flashback that brings Gov. Yahaya Bello to power in Kogi State.
Billygee2u:
Please Nairaland judges and lawyers, don't condemn and execute me on Nairaland cross , because of my innocent question .
I am really interested to know the above question.
As the saying goes what you don't know, you can't understand .
Please, what happens next, if a Presidential candidate dies before election date ?

lol, that is like asking whether a doctor knows what is syringe. How can a politician not know about an act that concerns his daily bread?
