The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has said it is yet to receive a copy of the recent court judgement on the Anambra Central senatorial election.
DAILY POST had earlier reported that INEC fixed January 13, 2018 as date for the conduct of re-run election to fill the vacant seat, following a judgement by the appeal court.
Meanwhile, a federal high court ruled on Wednesday that Obiora Okonkwo of the PDP be sworn in as senator for the zone.
However, speaking to Premium Times on Thursday, INEC spokesperson, Rotimi Oyekanmi, confirmed that he was aware of the ruling but said the commission was yet to get a copy of the judgement to study and make a decision whether to go ahead with the re-run election or not.
Mr. Oyekanmi said, “of course we are aware of (ruling) but we haven’t received a copy of the court’s order.”
“I am not sure the commission has details. We need to see the judgement to know if it’s enough to alter our decision,” he said.
