On his part, Chief Basil Ejidike, Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) said his party welcomed the timetable with delight.
Ejidike said the APC was now strong and united more than ever.
He said that the party had no misgivings about their chances in the election because it had identified its fault lines in previous election and was working on them.
