Court stops ABSIEC from holding local government election

Abia State Independent Electoral Commission (ABSIEC) has been barred from organizing the state’s Local Government election scheduled for May 19, 2023, by an Abia State High Court sitting in Arochukwu. 

The order was given following a lawsuit filed by Engr. Nwabueze Onwuneme against ABSIEC, Attorney General of Abia State, Prof. Mkpa Mkpa and Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu.


Justice Benson Anya restrained ABSIEC from organizing or conducting any election or acting on any election timetable or programme pending the hearing and determination of the suit. The matter was adjourned to April 23, 2023 for hearing of the motion on notice.
