Written by Adekoya on March 25, 2019
The Federal High Court in Abuja today gave the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC the leeway to continue and conclude the collation of the results of the March 9, 2019 governorship election in the Tafawa Balewa Local Government Area of Bauchi State.
Delivering judgment, Justice Inyang Ekwo set aside his earlier order of March 19, 2019, which stopped the collation of the results.
After declining jurisdiction to hear the substantive case, the judge ruled in his judgment that “the defendant (INEC) should be allowed to continue its constitutional duty”.
The suit was filed by the All Progressives Congress and its candidate in the governorship election in the state, Governor Mohammed Abubakar.
