DAN AKPAN PUSHES FOR CANCELLATION OF ELECTIONS IN NSIT UBIUM
The candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Etinan Federal Constituency is pushing for cancellation of election in all the wards and units in Nsit Ubium LGA. Our reporters learn that the reason Mr. Akpan is pushing for cancellation of the elections is because election did not hold in his Ward – Ubium South 2. It is learnt that election did not hold in Mr. Akpan’s Unit because he did not allow the officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to hold the election.
Our correspondent reached out to a lawyer, Barr Uwen Jonah on the legal implication of the situation. According to Barr Jonah, elections cannot be cancelled in all wards merely because of the inability to conduct election in a particular area. In his word, ‘where election is unable to hold in a particular area, such inability to conduct the election cannot affect election conducted in other areas,’ said Barr. Jonah. ‘Definitely, that is not the intention of the law,’ Barr. Jonah noted.
