BREAKING: COURT STOPS INEC FROM CONDUCTING SUPPLEMENTARY GOVERNORSHIP ELECTION IN ADAMAWA

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been restrained by a state high court in Yola from conducting the supplementary governorship election scheduled for March 23 in Adamawa state.

Justice Abdulaziz Waziri of Adamawa state high court granted an interim injunction barring INEC from conducting the supplementary polls in the 44 polling units where voting either did not hold during the March 9 governorship election or was cancelled, The Nation reports.

The order was given following a motion ex parte filed by Movement of Restoration for Defence of Democracy (MRPD), claiming that it’s party logo was excluded from the ballot paper for the March 9 governorship election conducted in the state.

Sahara Reporters also reports that on Wednesday, March 13, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) accused Governor Jibrilla Bindow of planning to use the MRPD to scuttle the supplementary election through unnecessary legal bottlenecks.

It has come to our attention the desperate moves by the leadership of Adamawa state government to upturn the mandate of the people.”

“One of the alleged moves is to lobby the presidency to cause the state high court to slam INEC with an order of injunction restraining the electoral body from conducting the supplementary election and cancel the entire elections.

They intend to use a governorship candidate who allegedly claimed that the logo of his party was omitted on the ballot in the last governorship election to file a case before the state High Court,” the party was quoted to have said.

Meanwhile, Continentour.com.ng had reported that a group, Coalition of Christian Youths for All Progressives Congress, asked the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) not to rejoice over the governorship election in Adamawa state until a winner has been declared.
