Court Stops Prosecution Of Suspended Adamawa State Rec.

Court declines to extend order stopping prosecution of suspended Adamawa REC.


The court noted that it could not entertain the motion because the defendants were not served.

Justice Donatus Okorowo adjourned the matter to July 24 for a hearing of the originating summons served on the defendants in the open court.

Binani had, in a suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/935/2023, sued INEC, the Inspector-General (IG) of Police, and the Attorney-General of the Federation (AGF) as 1st to 3rd, respectively.

In the suit, the applicant is seeking the interpretation of Section 144 of the Electoral Act, 2022 and a preservative order seeking the maintenance of the status quo in the matter pending the determination of the suit.

Binani’s counsel, former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice Chief Michael Aondoakaa, in the ex-parte motion earlier filed, drew the court’s attention to the fact that the matter was time-bound before a tribunal.

He, however, said that the star witness to his client, Hudu Yunusa Ari, was being harassed and prevented from giving evidence before the tribunal, which, if continued, would jeopardize his client’s case at the tribunal.

He then urged the court to halt the harassment of the star witness in the petition before a governorship election petition tribunal challenging INEC’s declaration of the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Adamawa Governor, Ahmadu Fintiri, as the winner on Sunday, April 16, 2023.

Aondoakaa told the court that according to the relevant laws, since Binani had been declared by the INEC, the declaration could only be legally and authentically reversed, by a court of competent jurisdiction or a tribunal, adding that all parties have joined issues at the tribunal on the legality of the declaration of the Plaintiff initially, and its subsequent cancellation by INEC.
