The decision of the court followed the inability of the electoral commission to conduct the supplementary election in 44 polling units in the state.

As a result of the suit, the supplementary governorship election did not hold in Adamawa on Saturday, March 23, when the exercise took place in other affected states of the federation.

It was learnt that the suit was filed against INEC by the governorship candidate of the Movement for Restoration and Defence for Democracy (MRDD), Mustafa Shaba.

In the suit, Shaba alleged that his party’s logo was omitted on the electoral materials used in the March 9, governorship election.
