Judge orders INEC not to distribute electoral materials via MC Oluomo

A Federal High Court has decided against the INEC because MC Oluomo, the leader of the NURTW’s Lagos Chapter, was involved in the distribution of election materials.

The union leader had requested the electoral umpire hire a business to deal with in order to disseminate materials to him in Lagos before the 2023 presidential elections.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is prohibited from utilizing Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo, to distribute election materials in the state, according to a judgement made on February 20 by Judge Chukwujekwu Aneke.

The court granted “an order of interlocutory injunction filed by the Labour Party and five others restraining the Independent National Electoral Commission of Nigeria (defendant/respondent), whether by itself or by its officers, affiliates, servants, privies or agents or any person acting or purporting to act for and on behalf howsoever from taking any steps or further steps whatsoever in furtherance of the engagement or appointment or consummating the appointment of Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo-led Lagos State Parks Management Committee or any of its commercial bus drivers to distribute 2023 election materials and personnel in Lagos State pending the hearing and determination the substantive suit.”
