"After the said publication, the Commission was served Orders of Court in respect of the nomination of candidates for Governorship, Senatorial, House of Representatives and State House of Assembly Elections."

"By virtue of the provision of Section 287 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended), the lists of candidates in respect of the affected Constituencies are amended pursuant to the Orders of Court. Please note that the amendment supersedes the earlier publications on 20th September and 4th October, 2022 in the affected Constituencies."
