APC, others lose bid to stop Ondo LG polls

22 April 2016, 13:53

Akure - The Court of Appeal ‎in Akure, the Ondo State capital has struck out the case filed by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and other parties in the state stopping the Ondo State Independent Electoral Commission (SIEC) from conducting local government elections in the state.

The court said it does not have the jurisdiction over matters involving the conduct of local government elections.

The presiding judge, Justice Folashade Olubanjo said it would amount to judicial pettiness to proceed with the suit when issues on the dissolution of the former councils were still pending before the Supreme Court.

She said proceeding with the interlocutory injunction on the case was a mere academic exercise as facts deduced from arguments and counter arguments showed that the suits were gross abuse of court process. 

The APC ‎has since decided to boycott the elections, which is scheduled to hold on Saturday, April 23.
