The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja today, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to recognize Prince Yusuf Kadari, SAN, as the Deputy Governorship candidate of the Labour Party, LP, for the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Edo State.

The court, in a judgement that was delivered by Justice Emeka Nwite, held that the LP was within its right, when it nominated Kadiri, SAN, as the running mate to its flag-bearer for the election, Mr. Olumide Akpata.

Justice Nwite held that the electoral body had no right to reject Kadiri’s nomination since the party acted in line with provisions of both the Electoral Act 2022 and the 1999 Constitution, as amended
