…it is waste of time – Labour Party

A Federal High Court has nullified the candidature of the Abia State Governor-elect, Dr. Alex Otti and all candidates of the Labour party in Abia, Kano and mother states for allegedly failing to comply with the provisions of the 2022 Electoral Act.

Happy Diamond Age

The Court in Suit No FHC/KN/CS/107/2023 filed by Mr. Ibrahim Haruna Ibrahim against the Labour Party (LP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ruled that the failure of the Labour Party to submit its membership register to the INEC within 30days before their Primaries renders the process invalid.

“The party that has not complied with the provisions of the Electoral Act cannot be said to have candidate in an election and cannot be declared winner of an election this being so, the votes credited to the 1st defendant is a wasted Vote as the decision of the Supreme court” the Judge ruled.

Speaking on the development, Otti urged Abians not to panic over his purported sack by a Federal High Court in Kano, saying there is no cause for alarm over the kangaroo judgement.-

This is as the Labour Party has dismissed the said judgment as a waste of time.
