Why Edo Electoral Body  Suspends Election


The Edo State Independent Electoral Commission (EDSIEC) has explained why it suspended the conduct of the local government elections. 

The local government elections was scheduled to hold April 19, 2022.

But a statement issued by Emmanuel Abebe, said the suspension of the local council elections was due to the restraining order by the Federal High Court, Abuja on EDSIEC.

EDSIEC said all arraignments have been suspended adding that they will wait for the hearing and the determination of the issue.

“It is hereby announced for the information of the general public that due to the content of the publication in the Vanguard Newspaper of 7th April, 2022 by which the Federal High Court Abuja restrained the Edo State Independent Electoral Commission from conducting the Local Government Elections in the State scheduled for 19th April 2022, all processes leading to the conduct of the said elections are hereby suspended, pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice,” the statement added.
