Speaks On Court’s Order Against Deregistering Political Parties

The Independent National Electoral Commission has reacted to the court’s ruling which asked the commission to stop the deregistration of 32 political parties in the country.

INEC’s Director Voter Education Publicity (VEP), Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi mocked the development, comparing the injunction with resurrecting the dead as courts do not grant injunctions to stop an act which has already been done.

Odunews.com reports that the Federal High Court ruled that INEC should halt the deregistration of 32 political parties.

Uzzi said he added the commission is yet to be served the court injunction.

“Courts don’t grant injunctions to stop an act which has already been done. Perhaps, the fact of deregistration wasn’t brought to the court’s attention.

“I am aware that this was mentioned in court today (yesterday) by the plaintiffs’ lawyer but their application to restore the plaintiffs as registered political parties wasn’t taken.

“This motion is still pending. The court has granted an accelerated hearing of the case.”
