Bayelsa Guber: Appeal Court in Port Harcourt orders INEC to maintain status quo





The Court of Appeal sitting in Port Harcourt has granted an ex-parte order of injunction restraining the Independent National Electoral Commission from disqualifying the Governorship candidate of APC in Bayelsa State elections holding tomorrow, the 16th of November, 2019.

The three-man appeal court panel led by Justice A.O Lukman-Sodipe also restrained INEC from executing the orders of the Federal High to remove the name and logo of the All Progressives Congress and its Governorship candidate, David Lyon from electoral materials.
Justice Sodipe in the ruling held that the panel abides by the decision made by an Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal which compelled INEC to maintain status quo from the 18th September 2019 when the matter was instituted, pending the determination of motion on notice for interlocutory injunction.

The Appeal Panel, thereafter, ordered that applicants serve all the respondents notices and other processes before adjourning till 21st of November for mention.
