Court’s rejects removal of INEC chair

Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, was not removed from office, on Wednesday, despite allegations that he did not properly disclose his assets as required by law, according to a court decision that was applauded by the Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP).

The CUPP, through its spokesperson, Chief Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, welcomed the judgment handed down by Justice M. A. Hassan as a significant New Year’s present from the Judiciary to Nigerians and a triumph for credible, free and fair elections in the nation.

Chief Ugochinyere insisted that the Judiciary has invalidated attempts by those who, in his opinion, are aware that they cannot win free and fair elections to sabotage the general election in 2023.

He applauded the court for taking action to stop security forces from looking into the INEC chairman over a fictitious claim that he failed to disclose all of his assets.

“I am happy that the Judiciary, over the months, has proven that it is the last hope of the common man.
