Prior to the elections to the Board of Governors and the Legislative Assembly, Mr. Daniel Nwafor, President of the Chapter on the Imo Progressive Congress in the State of Imo, accused the Electoral Commission of National Independent State of Imo (INEC) of flagrant disobedience Treatment reserved to the High Court with levity and disdain.
In a letter to the Head of Department (HoD) Elections and Party Oversight, INEC, Owerri, Lawyer V. O Nwokeabia, Nwafor alleged that despite the judgment and the court case, order of a Federal High Court, Abuja, in case No. FCT / HC / BW / CV / 103/2018, the INEC State, against all known democratic principles, dealt with the court and his judgment with lightness.
Nwafor said that the Federal High Court in Abuja had responded to his request, in which he asked Professor Francis Chukwuemeka Ezeonu, European Commissioner for Elections (REC), to recognize the permanent resident status of the country. Imo, and recognize him in his duties as President of the APC Imo Sate.
However, he said: “Despite the rule of law, your office has always insulted the court, its judgment, and its orders.” It is shocking of a lawyer who disobeyed court orders and treated the court with lightness, it is wrong and unacceptable. ”
Nwafor reminded INEC that Nigeria was governed by laws and that we all had to “obey”. Since the state of INEC HoD now claims to be more powerful than the courts and laws of the country.
So I continue with the question of contempt “.
