The 9th March governorship election in Bauchi state has been suspended as a result of a court order over continue collation of election result in the state which affected in Tafawa Balewa Local Government Area of Bauchi

The judge, Justice Inyang Ekwo, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to appear on Wednesday for hearing of the main suit filed by the All Progressives Congress and its candidate in the election, Governor Mohammed Abubakar, who is seeking re-election.

The court will also on Wednesday hear INEC’s notice of preliminary objection ‎challenging the jurisdiction of the court to hear the case.

Although, INEC, in response to the Monday’s summons appeared in court, through its lawyer, Mr. Taminu Inuwa (SAN), on Tuesday, the judge re-adjourned till Wednesday noting that the commission only responded to the main suit instead of showing cause to convince the court not to grant the plaintiffs’ prayer to stop the plaintiffs’ ex parte prayers.

Inuwa also said the commission was challenging the jurisdiction of the Federal High Court to hear the case of the plaintiff, but Justice Ekwo said that the court’s jurisdiction could not be challenged orally but only via a written application.

At the Tuesday’s proceedings attended by the plaintiffs’ lawyer, Mr. Ahmed Raji (SAN), the judge ordered the parties to “maintain the res” which literally means parties should not take action that can affect the subject matter in the suit.

Timi Frank accuses APC

Comrade Timi Frank, former assistant National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressive Congress (APC), applauded a press release by a U.S based agency – the Digital Forensic Research Laboratory of the Atlantic Council.

The US firm had revealed ‘Archimedes’, a political consultant firm in Isreal role in spreading fake news through the social media about PDP Presidential Candidate – Atiku Abubakar.

Facebook expelled Archimedes from the network on Thursday due to its “coordinated and deceptive behavior”. The popular network also removed dozens of accounts and thousands of facebook pages that are created to disrupt elections in Countries in Africa, with a few sparse exercise in East asia and South America.

In response to the ban, Mr Frank, through a comment on Saturday,  said the world would eventually realize all the lies behind Gen. Muhammadu Buhari’s proclamation as the victor during the last election.

One of pages removed by Facebook on Thursday, as revealed by Frank, was loaded with viral false news and targeted attacks on Abubakar, Nigeria’s former vice president.

According to Timi Frank, the report reads:

“that on the overall, the misleading accounts had reached some 2.8 million users, and the pages had engaged over 5,000 followers, according to Facebook’s estimates.”

After praising Facebook, He went on further to say:

“Nigerians ought to be worried about how the APC-led government is spending huge amount of money just to discredit the rightful winner of the 2019 presidential election, Atiku Abubakar.

“I believe that if a lie goes on for 20 years, truth will definitely catchup with it one day. It will not be long before Nigerians will realise how desperate and fake President Muhammadu Buhari is in his bid to hang onto power.”

The political nationalist called on the rest of the world to acknowledge the press release of the Associated Press as well as the resulting damage accomplished in the last election to Nigeria’s second largest party and its presidential nominee.

He said:

“The AP’s report has clearly shown the level of lies sponsored against Atiku during and after the last general election. The campaign of calumny has not stopped but Nigerians should henceforth disregard malicious reports in the social media against the former VP,”
