A State High Court in Yola, Adamawa State, has barred the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from conducting the supplementary governorship election scheduled for March 23 in the state.
This followed the granting of an injunction to that effect by Justice Abdulaziz Waziri.
The governorship candidate of the Movement for the Restoration and Defence of Democracy, MRRD, Rev. Eric Theman, had filed a suit to prevent INEC from conducting the supplementary election because the logo of his party was not included in the ballot papers for the election.
INEC announced that supplementary elections would be held in Adamawa State and five others where the March 9 election had been declared inconclusive.
In the state, the election was declared inconclusive because the margin of lead between the two leading parties was said to be lower than the number of registered voters in polling units where voting was cancelled.
