The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has included in its list the name of Barrister Nnadozie Okpokiri as the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate for Ukwa East/Ukwa West Federal Constituency in the 2023 general elections.

The Federal High Court sitting in Umuahia had, recently, given an order directing INEC to include the name of the APC candidate in its list, following an action filed before it by Okpokiri’s lawyer.

In its publication, INEC says, “By virtue of the provision of Section 287 of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 as amended, the Commission is bound to enforce the Orders of Court on the Nomination of candidates by political parties in the affected constituencies.

“Consequently, the list of candidates in respect of the attached Senatorial Districts and Federal Constituencies, Governorship and State House of Assembly elections are amended pursuant to the Orders of Court served on the Commission as at 21st December, 2022 for upload on the Commission’s website.”
