Just when Ifeanyi Ararume, the recently declared winner of the December 2020 Imo North Senatorial election, was singing songs of victory, his joy has been cut short.
This happened when an Imo state high court issued an order of interim injunction to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) restraining it from giving Ararume a certificate of return, according to a Channels TV reports.
According to a ruling read by Justice E. O. Agba on Thursday, March 18, this order will stand pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice in a suit brought before the court.
Justice Agba revealed that the suit was filed by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), one Kelechi Soribe, a member of the party’s working committee in Imo, and five others against Ararume, INEC and the APC.
