Court clears INEC to go ahead with Adamawa supplementary election
A State High Court sitting in Yola, Adamawa State, on Tuesday vacated its earlier order restraining the Independent National Electoral Commission from conducting the governorship supplementary election in the state.
The court presided by Justice Abdul’Aziz Waziri also ruled that it has the jurisdiction to hear the case filed before by a political party, Movement for the Restoration and Defence of Democracy.
In his ruling Tuesday, the court fixed Wednesday, March 27, to hear the originating motion by MRDD asking the court to nullify the first Adamawa governorship election conducted on March 9.
The party alleged that INEC had removed its logo during the election.
