The Nigerian Attorney-General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, has been ordered by the Federal High Court in Umuahia to delete Section 84:12 of the Electoral Act.

The court said Friday that government appointees who want to contest for any political position in the country can now do so.

According to the social media users, the news is a big win for Abubakar Malami, who is aiming for the governorship position in 2023.

Why did Malami get a court order to delete Section 84-12 of the Electoral Act?

Section 84-12 is unconstitutional under the Electoral Amendment Act, says Justice Evelyn Anyadike.

  • “unconstitutional, invalid, illegal, null, void, and of no effect whatsoever and ought to be struck down as it cannot stand when it is in violation of the clear provisions of the Constitution.”
  • “forthwith delete the said Subsection 12 of Section 84 from the body of the Electoral Act, 2022.”
