Olumide Oworu, the Labour Party candidate for Surelere 1 Constituency, is not on the final list of governorship and House of Assembly candidates.

Reports on social media, particularly Twitter, suggested that Oworu’s name was missing.

A Twitter user @StFrankingKezy in a tweet said “This guy is not even a candidate of LP in the forthcoming Gov & HoA elections oooooo because his name is not even on INEC list. Wonders shall never end. Who started the narrative?”

Checks carried out on The Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) final list of gubernatorial and state House of Assembly candidates revealed Oworu’s name was indeed missing.

In his place, INEC listed 47-year-old Adebayo Bode.
