Breaking: Court gives INEC go ahead to declare Bauchi guber election winner

The Federal High Court a while ago on Monday lifted its temporary ban on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to continue with the collation of governorship election results in Bauchi State and equally declare winner.

The court had entertained a suit filed by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Governor Mohammed Abubakar, asking the court to determine whether INEC has the powers to decide collation of results after the announcement of a suspension.

Due to previous court order, INEC couldn’t declare winner of the state gubernatorial election.

The Peoples Democratic Party won the previous election as well as the supplementary election conducted on March 23.
