The Save Adamawa group has urged the All Progressives Congress candidate in the 2023 governorship election to allow the rogue REC, Hudu Yunusa Ari, to defend his illegal pronouncement of winner in the middle of the election to face the full wrath of the law.
In light of Hudu Yunusa Ari’s illegal proclamation of winner in the midst of the poll, the Save Adamawa group has demanded that the All Progressive candidate in the 2023 governorship election give him the opportunity to defend his actions.
Since she is not Hudu by name or an employee of INEC, group secretary Muhammad Abdukadri urged Binani in a news release that Hudu be allowed to defend himself.
Unfortunately, I’ve discovered that Binani has filed a motion with the Federal High Court in Abuja to prevent Wednesday’s scheduled hearing of INEC v. Hudu in the court of cordinate jurisdiction.
We see no point in expending such efforts.How can a federal high court, which is similar to a state high court, make an injunction preventing another court with equal authority from hearing the pending case?
Why do they need to get another ex parte order from the court so quickly?Even Binani and her party are aware that the returning officer is responsible for announcing the winner in any election in Nigeria;
Section 149 cannot enable the REC to do so in accordance with the electoral laws, and the court will issue a decision that will shake them.
No court ruling can prevent an organisation from pursuing any of its own members who run afoul of the law if those members lack the requisite legal understanding. If today’s actions by Binani are upheld, any Nigerian court can issue an injunction preventing the prosecution of anybody suspected of armed robbery. Abdukadir said
