Court Okays Local Government Elections To Proceed In Kwara State.
Speaking through its lawyer, Salman Jawondo, PDP had approached the court, seeking an order to restrain the Kwara state Independent Electoral Commission (KWASIEC) from conducting the scheduled election into the 16 local councils of Kwara state.
The suit also joined the state Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Kamaldeen Ajibade (SAN) in the case.
PDP had claimed alleged unconstitutional procedures adopted by the state’s electoral commission, KWAISEC in the guidelines released for candidates participating in the local government election.
He said: “What the Kwara state House of Assembly did constitutionally and additionally is to aide the Federal Law; the state law is not inconsistent with the Electoral law. Kwara state House of Assembly did not run foul of the Constitution rather it complemented it.”
