PDP takes Justice Inyang to NJC for halting poll collation

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday petitioned the National Judicial Council (NJC) following the order issued by Justice Ekwo Inyang of the Federal High Court Abuja stopping the collation and announcement of the result of the March 9, 2019 Bauchi State governorship election.

Governor Mohammed Abubakar of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had approached the court after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) rescinded its decision to hold a rerun on the inconclusive poll and opted to proceed with counting and result declaration.
