Rivers guber: Court stops INEC from announcing results

Federal High Court in Abuja, has ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to halt the collation and announcement of the result of the March 9 election in Rivers State.

INEC had suspended all electoral processes in the state following widespread violence.

The commission, however, announced last week, that results of the elections in 17 local government areas of the state were intact and that it would make public its decision on the election by Wednesday.

Justice Iyang Ewa has now ordered the commission to halt its scheduled resumption of the announcement of the result, based on an ex parte application filed by the African Action Congress (AAC) candidates.

The applicant prayed the court for an order of interim injunction restraining INEC from resuming, collating or announcing the results of the suspended elections in Rivers.

Ewa ordered INEC to appear before the court on Friday, for the hearing of the suit filed against it by AAC.

He also affirmed that the court would give its final order after it concludes the suits brought before it by the plaintiffs.
