The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), on Tuesday, said it will do everything humanly possible to comply with the ruling of a Federal High Court in Abuja on the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR).
Justice Mobolaji Olajuwon of the Federal High Court in Abuja had stopped INEC from going ahead with its decision to end the CVR exercise on June 30, as scheduled.
However, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Commissioner on Information and Voter Education, Festus Okoye, while appearing on Channels Television’s “Politics Today”, on Tuesday, noted that the commission is a constitutional body, “and we are under a constitutional obligation to give effect to judgments and orders of properly constituted courts of law, and we are going to give effect to the order made by the Federal High Court.”
Okoye noted that the CVR exercise had been going on for the past year and that INEC would on the 29th day of June convince the court on the adjourned date on why the exercise should be discontinued for now.
According to him, the court has asked INEC to come back on 29 June and explain its position.
