Abuja Judge Issues Late-Night Court Order Compelling INEC To Restore Jonathan's Candidate In Bayelsa Guber Election

Seriake Dickson
By SaharaReporters, New York

An Abuja Federal High Court judge has granted a late-night  ex-parte order aimed at compelling the  Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chair Prof Attahiru Jega to include the name of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate Henry Seriake Dickson  as candidate in the upcoming governorship election.

Justice Olootu of the Federal High Court in Abuja gave the unusual order in chambers protected by soldiers and policemen deployed by the presidency.

The petition was heard and concluded in less than 15 minutes tonight between 9: 00 -9:15 PM. Mr. Dickson had secretly approached the court over his  exclusion   from the list of those who will contest the governorship poll next month in Bayelsa state.

Hello Justice Ego Ego

This reminds one of Justice Ego Ego of Enugu High Court (of Obj's inglorious days) who gave a 'black market injunction' directing Chris Ngige not to parade himself as the democratictly elected Governor of Anambra State having been already overthrown by Andy Uba in a commador style coup at that time.

I bet this @otondo is from the city of mugun call bayelsa too, your parents should be ashamed of you, that is if you ever pass thru school, what's veto got to do with this? Nigeria have a lot of mumu citizens than i thought.

This 2015 election rehearsal.

PDP ----Power to the "PEOPLE"

GEJ, o- GEJ. Gives himself a

GEJ, o- GEJ. Gives himself a national award, then goes on a spending spree for new presidential jets, then allocates billions for his own upkeep while refusing to declare his assets, then thumbing his nose at the courts in his effort to impose a stooge as governor, then sends out the army to intimidate peaceful and defenseless protesting citizens. All these in less than 2 years (and the list is abbreviated). Three more years to go? No wait, are we really sure it is only 3 more years? Mobutu Sese Seko would have admired this man!

re-dumbo can never disappoint

Netanyahoo,u're the biggest fool of the highest order.U should shut ur dirty mouth nd do that 4ever.hw on earth can u be abusing pple 'cos they voted somebody they in their own opinion blieve can perform nd he didn't.is it anybody's fault?u're a moron,u lack respect bcos i know elderly pple who are old to be ur father or mother voted for him too,u should learn to control ur dirty mouth.if the worst happened,do think u will escape it either directly or indirectly?maybe u're not in the country.idiot!

THEY ARE ONLY 2% WE ARE 98% WHAT DO YOU KNOW? EXPOSE IT

THEY ARE ONLY 2% WE ARE 98% IT CANNOT CONTINUE LIKE THIS

NOT JUST SUBSIDY! TRUE FEDERALISM AND PUNISHMENT FOR CORRUPTION

THIS CHANCE IN OUR GENERATION MUST NOT BE MISSED

THIS CHANCE TO ERADICATE CORRUPTION IN OUR GENERATION MUST NOT BE MISSED

OCCUPY NIGERIA PROTEST SHOULD CHANGE EMPHASIS FROM SUBSIDY TO ERADICATION OF CORRUPTION.

THERE SHOULD BE A COLLATION OF ALL THESE POINT BLANK CASES OF CORRUPTION FOR ALL THE PROTESTERS ON THE GROUND TO READ.

SPEAKERS AT PROTESTS SHOULD NOT WASTE TIME ON BABBLINGS BUT BE PRECISE IN DECIMATING THE EFFECTS OF THIS CORRUPT PRACTICES TO THEIR LISTENERS.

THIS CHANCE TO ERADICATE CORRUPTION IN OUR GENERATION MUST NOT BE MISSED

Its bcos we let ourselves be

Its bcos we let ourselves be divided by tribe/religion to support corrupt Nigeria system = evil. Buhari a Muslim fights for justice/equity& not to loot our money & become king. Buhari would jail IBB & muslim Governor looters now in government with “our” Jonathan. Jonathan/Christian President = Mosques are being built all over in Abuja with loud speakers now as if d city is not planned. El Rufai- a sincere muslim could nt have allowed the mosques & Abuja will be city for all & not symbol of Islam as is looking now. Christians like Fashola, Tunde Bakare stand for TRUTH, JUSTICE, EQUITY. Jonathan pronounced publicly that Buhari has integrity/honesty. Zakari was dismissed from police by Obasanjo but promoted back to Commissioner of Police by “our” Jonathan. Obasanjo did his home work, Jonathan did not! Buhari will remove IG in hours. Only God fearing TRUTH, JUSTICE, EQUITY Leaders will save Jos/Nigeria.

change

Yes we definately need change or revolution in Nigeria.

LATE NIGHT COURT BY A JUDGE ?

PDP AND JUDICIARY ARE ONE AND THE SAME THING. THEY ARE BIRDS OF THE SAME FEATHER. THE JUDGEMENT AT THAT HOUR IS NOT SURPRISING. THE JUDGE MIGHT HAVE GOT DIRECTIVE FROM THE PRESIDENCY. I PITY JUDICIARY.

BAYELSA GOBERNOTORIAL ELECTION

Its just a pity that one of the most corrupts politicians ever to be produced in the history of Nigeria is President Jonathan,however,i strongly belief that the court's overnight injuction would'nt matter much,in as much as the outcome of the poll will be determined by the people. I wish the people's choice good luck.

This is very laughable. Not

This is very laughable. Not all judges are corrupt. Sahara Reporters should at some point check out these gossips (rather than news) otherwise her reputation will be grossly tarnished.

Ex-parte court order on Bayelsa

Mr. President why are you delving into deeper murky waters? We've not finished with Boko Haram and fuel subsidy and now this.
Because for heavy security to be administered, it means you will have a hand in it or someone in your government does.
Please do something and save your image and the image of Nigeria.

hahahahahahaha...............

hahahahahahaha............................and they voted for Jonathan and not PDP..............well we still have 3 years to go...............

Nigerian Judiciary Playing Political Roles?

I am not very conversant with the Rules of the Courts, but Judges sitting at late hours to issue injunctions are doing more damage to the already tattered reputation of the judiciary. More tellingly why deploy soldiers of all people to Courts when the case is purly political in the instance and a Supreme Court Ruling that Political Parties are solely reponsible for the candidadtes they choose to represent them im elections?

COURT COMPELS INEC TO RESTORE NAME OF BAYELSA PDP CANDIDATE

(Contd)
Following the filing
of the application yesterday by the PDP candidate, a considered ruling was
delivered today at about 4.30pm by Hon. Gladys Olotu at the Federal High Court
sitting in Abuja.
Before now, Sahara
Reporters, an online news media had earlier gone to town with the news to
falsely misrepresent facts with the aim of casting aspersions on the ruling of
the court as well as to portray the judiciary in bad light.
The action taken by
Hon. Henry Seriake Dickson was the right and proper thing to do in view of the
gross embarrassment and the injustice meted out to him by INEC as a result of
the unlawful exclusion of his name from the list of candidates released to
contest the governorship election in Bayelsa State.
The stories of
deployment of police and military personnel is completely untrue and a figment
of the imagination of the writers.
