JUST IN: Court bars INEC from resuming collation in Bauchi



A federal high court in Abuja has ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to proceed with the collation of the result of the March 9 governorship election in Bauchi state.

Mohammed Abubakar, governor of Bauchi state and candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the election, had headed to the court to challenge INEC’s decision to continue collating the result instead of conducting supplementary election as earlier planned.

Inyang Ekwo, a member of the panel that heard the suit on Tuesday, held that the order would last till the determination of the suit brought before the court by the plaintiff.

In the ex parte motion, Abubakar prayed the court for an order of interim injunction restraining INEC from resuming, concluding or announcing the result of the Tafawa Balewa local government area of Bauchi.
