Nigeria’s Labour Party has appointed Doyin Okupe as the Vice Presidential candidate to the party’s flag bearer Peter Obi, but in a placeholder capacity to whip the Friday deadline set by INEC.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday announced that there would be no extension of today’s (Friday) deadline for parties to submit the names of their presidential candidates and running mates.
