INEC had approved a timetable for conducting bye-elections due to the resignation or demise of members of the National and State Houses of Assembly.

In a memo issued in Abuja, the National Secretary of the Labour Party, Umar Farouk, revealed that the party has set the fees for the nomination forms for the Senate at N3.5m, House of Representatives at N2m, and the House of Assembly at N500,000.

Farouk also stated that the sales of the nomination, expression of interest, and delegate forms will commence from December 28, 2023, to January 4, 2024, with the submission of completed forms ending on January 4, 2024.

“The primary elections will be held on January 7, 2024. Female aspirants and Persons Living with Disabilities are exempt from payment of fees for the Expression of Interest Forms only,” the statement read.

It further added, “The forms for the bye-election can be obtained at the office of the National Organising Secretary, National Headquarters in 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 members of the public.

“We urge our aspirants to disregard their nuisance value and focus on the project before them. We also warn these falling villains to seek for an alternate platform to vend their trade as Nigerians are already aware of their shameful gimmick which has since expired.
