The Independent National Electoral Commission was on Thursday directed by the Federal High Court, Abuja, to restore candidate of the Social Democratic Party in the November 16 governorship election in Kogi State, Mrs Natasha Akpoti, on the ballot.
Justice Folashade Ogunbanjo-Giwa pointed that the INEC went wrong by refusing to accept the SDP and its candidate on the ballot.
According to Ogunbanjo-Giwa, the electoral umpire lacked the powers to prevent any candidate from participating in the election without a court order.
The Kogi gubernatorial election is coming on 16th of November 2019 and the major contender is the present governor of the state Yahaya Bello of All Progressive Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, ENGR Musa Wada
