The Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed a suit filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stop the ongoing collation and announcing of the result of the governorship election that held in Bauchi State on March 9.
According to PUNCH, the judgment was delivered by Justice Inyang Ekwo.
He declined the jurisdiction to rule on the case claiming the plaintiff ought to have directed their complaints at the election tribunal. He said:
“The defendant (INEC) should be allowed to continue its constitutional duty.
There is no legal impediment before the defendant to go on with the decision of the defendant to execute its decision in its press release.”
