Edo State Independent Electoral Commission (EDSIEC) has suspended the conduct of local council election scheduled for April 19, 2022.

Edo State Independent Electoral Commission (EDSIEC) has suspended the conduct of local council election scheduled for April 19, 2022.

According to a statement signed by Emmanuel Abebe, on behalf of EDSIEC chairman, the suspension of the election was due to the restraining order by the Federal High Court, Abuja, on the commission.

EDSIEC said all processes leading to the conduct of the elections had been suspended, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

He said: “It is hereby announced, for the information of the general public, that due to the content of the publication in the Vanguard Newspaper of April 7, 2022 by which the Federal High Court, Abuja, restrained EDSIEC from conducting the local council elections in the state scheduled for April 19, 2022, all processes leading to the conduct of the election are hereby suspended, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.”
