Court restrains INEC from conducting supplementary gov’ship election

A state high court in Yola has barred the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from conducting the supplementary governorship election for which it scheduled March 23 in Adamawa State.

The Adamawa State High Court, presided by Justice Abdulaziz Waziri, 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 high court judgement was sequel to a suit filed by the governorship candidate of the Movement for the Restoration and Defence of Democracy (MRRD), Rev Eric Theman, who questioned non-inclusion of his party logo for the governorship election by INEC.

APC Court... No court can stop INEC from conducting elections.

PDP has already raised alarm about this before, see their statement below

At a press briefing in Yola on Wednesday, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had 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,” it said.

“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.”



However, Kashim Gaidam, Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) of INEC reacted thus: “For your information court orders cannot stop elections.

“Having said that, only INEC at the national office, can respond to any matter involving court orders.”

Professor Andrew Haruna declared the Adamawa State governorship election inconclusive, citing the slim margin of 32,476 votes between while cancelled ballots amounted to 40,988.

Ahmed Umar Fintiri, candidate of the PDP had polled 367,471 votes, while the incumbent governor, Jibrilla Bindow of the All Progressives Congress (APC), scored 334,995 votes.

The worst and most inconclusive INEC Chairman in the history of the country. Maybe after Iwu. We may need to reconsider the use of academias as election umpires. Not all professors are smart as you think. Smartness is an attribute.

Frivolous judgement! You did not give judgement to stop the main election but you want to stop a supplementary election where PDP is leading?
APC is a criminal organization!

The law backs him.moreover he didnt know until the day of elections when his party was missing from the ballot.if his party was duly cleared for the election and inec omitted them from the ballot papers without any legal backing,then the polls is null and void

So the useless party just noticed it now ba since APC can not get enough votes to make them win Adamawa in the supplementary election? Why didn't they go to court in the main election when they noticed it?
