The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Tuesday has ordered INEC to resume voters registration. The Independent National Electoral Commission will resume registration until 90 days before election.

Justice Inyang Ekwo, in the judgment also directed INEC that eligible Nigerians shouldn’t be denied opportunity. They shouldn’t be deprived the chance to have their voters card for the forthcoming poll.

Inyang Ekwo maintains the fact that it was the constitutional right of the electoral umpire to make adequate provision for the exercise in accordance with the Nigerian laws.

“The case of the plaintiffs succeeds on merit”, the judge said.

The News Agency of Nigeria report that Anajat Salmat and three others had sued INEC as sole defendants in a suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/1343/2022.

In the originating summons filed before the courts, the plaintiffs argued that INEC cannot stop the CVR. This is contrary to the stipulated provisions of the constitution.

They urged the court to order the electoral umpire to resume the exercise in accordance with the law of the Nation.
