The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that it was staying action on the controversial Imo North Senatorial elections deadlock.
In a statement on Tuesday night, a National Commissioner and Member, Information and Voter Education Committee, Mallam Mohammed Haruna, said that the commission has been served with an ex parte order halting further action on the matter.
“Further to our statement of 4th April 2019 on the setting up of a committee by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to investigate the veracity or otherwise of allegations of misconduct in the Imo North Senatorial election, the commission wishes to inform the public that the Committee has completed its assignment,” Haruna said.
He however said that the order, issued by the Federal High Court in Abuja on 9th April 2019, specifically ordered the commission to stay ‘ALL FURTHER PROCEEDINGS AND ACTIONS by the Respondent (INEC) pertaining, relating or connected with the declaration of Imo North Senatorial District election results of 23rd February and 9th March 2019, pending the determination of the application for prohibition.’
He said the case, which was instituted by Senator Benjamin Uwajumogu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate against INEC a day after it set up the committee, has been adjourned to 30th April 20l9 for hearing.
