2019 Elections: APC stops INEC from continuing Bauchi result Bauchi result collation

The All Progressive Congress (APC) has removed its giant logo erected at the Abuja city gate at the heat of presidential election campaign in February.

The giant broom drew criticism from Nigerians and especially residents of the capital, many of who described it as an eyesore.

Construction workers were reportedly spotted at the City Gate pulling down the broom which was made of iron rods on Friday.

The Federal High Court in Abuja has stopped the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from proceeding with the collation, conclusion and announcement of the result of the governorship election in Bauchi State held on March 9, 2019.
Justice Inyang Ekwo issued the order on Tuesday on the strength of an ex parte application filed by the All Progressive Congress and the incumbent governor of Bauchi State, Mohammed Abubakar.

Justice Ekwo had on Monday while ruling on the ex parte ordered INEC to appear before him on Tuesday to show cause why the order sought by the two plaintiffs ought not to be granted.
