2023: Obi, Tinubu, Kwankwaso, Atiku, cleared by INEC, lists qualifications

The Independent National Electoral Commission on Tuesday released the final list of candidates for national elections, namely presidential, senatorial and federal constituencies, in line with the 2023 elections timetable earlier released in the year.

INEC, which confirmed this in a statement by the National Commissioner in Charge of Voters’ Education, Festus Okoye, also posted the list on its website.

According to the list, Peter Obi presented his highest certificate as BSc, Bola Tinubu, BSc, Atiku Abubakar, MSc, Rabiu Kwankwaso, PhD.

However, there are surprise inclusions and exclusions in federal lawmakers’ category. The Skuup has reported that Senate President Ahmed Lawan misses out, while Ibrahim Shekarau makes the list despite defection to PDP.
