2019 election: INEC respond to court order against APC candidates in Rivers

2019 election: INEC respond to court order against APC candidates in Rivers

In a judgment given by Justice James Kolawole Omotosho of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt state that INEC should not recognise any candidate of the APC in the general election that would take place in Rivers state.

However, reacting to the Judgment the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has said it will not hesitate to implement the order of court restraining the commission from listing candidates of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State for the general elections.

Festus Okoye the INEC National Electoral Commissioner in charge of Operations, in an interview with journalists, said INEC will remove names of the candidates of the APC in Rivers state after studying finding merit in the judgement.

Okoye also said that the commission has a team that will study the judgement and advice on the line of action and they are not disturbed about the different interpretations of the judgement.

Okoye statement was: “We are not interested in the conundrum in Rivers State. What we have said is that the moment any properly constituted court of law makes an order or gives a judgement and we obtain a certified true copy of that particular judgement and we confirm that it is a judgement from a properly constituted court of Law and that the judgement affects any of our processes we will give effect to that particular judgement. This applies across board.

“There is what we call the ratio of a matter. Why we insist on obtaining court judgments and studying it before giving effect to them is because we do not want to rely on the reportage on the pages of newspapers or posts on social media.
