The High Court in Yola, Adamawa State, has restrained INEC from conducting the supplementary election in the state due to the omission of the logo of a political party, Movement for the Restoration and Defence of Democracy (MRDD) on the ballot paper.
Recall that INEC had fixed March 23 to conduct supplementary elections in the six states where elections were declared inconclusive.
The Court, in a ruling delivered by Justice Azeez on Thursday also INEC from upholding the just declared inconclusive governorship elections in the state.
The ruling followed a suit that was lodged before the court by National leadership of the MRDD and its Adamawa governorship candidate, Rev. Eric Theman.
Theman had urged INEC to cancel the governorship election in the state over absence of his party logo on the ballot paper.
Speaking in Yola last Sunday, he said whatever the outcome of the election was unacceptable to him and his party.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) of INEC in Adamawa, Mr Kashim Gaidam, who reacted to the development then, stated that the issue was beyond his mandate. He said the INEC headquarters in Abuja was in a better position to explain the situation.
