Following adoption of written addresses by the four respondents, Justice Taiwo Taiwo fixed the date for judgement.

Candidate
of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Sen Benjamin Uwajumogu, had
approached the court to compel the Independent National Electoral
Commission (INEC) to issue certificate of return to him as
senator-elect.

The respondents are Independent National Electoral
Commission (INEC) Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) All Progressive Grand
Alliance (APGA) and Action Alliance (AA).

The senatorial election in Imo North was declared inconclusive as a result of alleged violence and irregularities.

Sequel to this, INEC had announced the setting up of a committee to look into the situation of Imo North senatorial election.

However,
Uwajumogu approached the court to stop the committee’s sitting and for
an order compelling INEC to issue him certificate of return as he
claimed that his election was not declared under duress by the returning
officer.

Following report of the committee, INEC announced that
it has suspended all further proceedings and actions in the Imo North
senatorial election.
