Written by News Room on April 9, 2022
The Edo State Independent Electoral Commission (EDSIEC) on Friday announced the suspension of the state local government election earlier scheduled for April 19, over a court judgement.
Reports say some members of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) following the crisis in the party dragged the commission to a Federal High Court in Abuja for not giving the mandatory 90 days’ notice of election.
The decision to suspend the election is contained in a statement signed by Emmanuel Abebe on behalf of the chairman of the commission, retired Justice James Oyomire, and made available to newsmen in Benin.
