Al-Amin alleged that the PDP during the primary election “sidelined and booted him out” of the race.

Delivering a ruling, Justice Lewis Alagua, nullified the election on the premise that the party had no incontrovertible reason to deny the plaintiff participating in the primary election because he formally brought his expression and nomination form.

Alagua also held that denying the plaintiff the right to participate in the primary election, contravened the provision of the Electoral Act. He ordered for a valid fresh primary election before the forthcoming governorship election on March 9 in the country.

Earlier, the plaintiff, Ali-Amin, prayed the court to nullify the election on the ground that it was grossly flawed, given the manner he had been sidelined with no justifiable reasons to legitimize such an act.

He said he was blatantly denied participation in the primary election, in spite of the fact that he had brought his expression and nomination form.

It was, however the contention of the plaintiff that there was also the need for the court to interpret whether the party could go ahead to field a candidate for the election in Kano State without conducting the primary election or not.

In his submission, counsel to the plaintiff, Barrister Kabir Usman said the judgement effected had become legally expedient, since his client had been denied the right to contest the election. He said with the cancellation of the primary election, the governorship slot is now vacant, pending when a fresh and valid primary election is held.

In his remarks, counsel to PDP, Bashir Yusuf said the verdict did not affect Abba Kabir-Yusuf as a candidate but PDP as a party pointing out they would appeal against the judgement.

Why electricity consumers should not pay for energy not used – NERC 20200226 042055

The Deputy General Manager, Customer Service Standards, National Electricity Regulations Commission (NERC), Dr. Shittu Shaibu, on Tuesday declared that electricity consumers should be made to pay for energy they did not consume.

He made the deceleration during a one-day public consultation forum with the customers of Benin Electricity Distribution Company, BEDC and members of Civil Society group in Benin

Shaibu said it will be a disservice to the electricity consumers for them to be made to pay for what they are not given adding that the BEDC must do something to ensure that the consumers are satisfied with their service.

“If you are given service, you pay for service and if you are not given light, you should challenge, follow the NERC process.

“First, you have to report to the Customers Complaint Unit and if you are not satisfied, you take it to the Forum Office and after which, you pass on to the Commission and your issues will be resolved and it doesn’t matter whether it is metering, whether it is transformer or service delivery.

“So, you can only pay if you are given a bill good enough for you”, he said.

The DGM Customer Service Standards hinted that the problem between the electricity distributor (BEDC) and the public is a communication gap and that effort must be intensified to bridge the gap.

On the issue of the revocation of the company’s license, the NERC representative, said BEDC still has additional year to prove their competency.

He said the NERC will do everything within the armbit of the law to ensure that electricity problem is addressed.

Speaking on the proposed increment in electricity tariff, the Coordinator-General of Edo Civil Society Organizations, (EDOCSO) Leftist Agho Omobude advised the BEDC to improve on their power supply to their customers and should not contemplate increment at all, noting that they have not lived up to their billing to the public.

BREAKING: IG of Police scraps SARS satellite offices adamu igp 1024x819 1

The Inspector General of Police (IGP) Abubakar Adamu, on Tuesday, ordered the closure of all Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) satellite offices.

The directive followed Monday’s protests in Sagamu against SARS.

The people had marched against the killing of Remo Stars Football Club player, Tiamiyu Kazeem aka Kaka, in Ogun State.

Adamu announced the scrap when he accompanied Dapo Abiodun, on a condolence visit to the home of the deceased Vice-Captain of Remo Stars.

The IGP was represented by Deputy Inspector General of Police, in-charge of Research and Planning, Peter Ogunyanwo.

He ordered that all activities at the satellite offices should be handed over to Commissioners of Police in the state.

Adamu assured that everyone responsible for his death would be prosecuted accordingly.

Abiodun and the delegation also visited the Akarigbo of Remoland, Oba Babatunde Ajayi.

The Governor said: “Today, I was on a condolence visit to the residence of Tiamiyu Kazeem’s parents.

“Tiamiyu, who was until his death, a vice captain of the Remo Stars Football Club died in an unfortunate encounter with some men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) who were on an illegal mission.

“Kaka’s death is irreversibly regrettable because Ogun State has lost a man of unexplored talents.

“But this long-awaited, significant reform within the structures of the Nigerian Police assures us of an end to such anomalies,” the governor added.
