There will be by-elections in Cross River and some states other in Nigeria on December 5, 2020, and we’re counting down to the elections. We have written about everything you need to know about the by-elections and all the candidates in the Bayelsa West and Central Senatorial by-election.

In Cross River state, the death of Senator Rose Oko, who represented Cross River North Senatorial District, on March 24th 2020, meant that there was the need for a by-election to fill her vacant seat. This article is a curation of all the candidates who will be battling to fill her seat in the Cross River North Senatorial by-election.
