The nullification was predicated on the petition of the candidate of the ANDP in the November 16 governorship poll Mr. Lucky King-George, against his exclusion from the poll by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The majority decision had upheld Mr. Lucky King-George’s argument that he was unlawfully excluded from the poll and subsequently ordered INEC to Conduct a fresh poll in the State.
