The Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to restore Mrs. Natasha Akpoti of the Social Democratic Party as a candidate in the forthcoming November 16 governorship election in Kogi State.

Justice Folashade Ogunbanjo-Giwa held that INEC acted above the law by refusing to accept the party and its candidate ‎for the poll.

She ruled that INEC had no power to disqualify any candidate for an election without the backing of a court order.

She ordered the Commission to put the SDP logo on the ballot papers to be used for the election.
