KOWA party and its supporters have boycotted Saturday re-run election for Numan/Lamurde/Demsa Federal Constituency of Adamawa.
Speaking on the development, the chairman of the party, Alhaji Umar Bobboi, said the party decided to boycott the election because it was illegal as there was an existing Abuja High court order stopping its conduct.
“Our candidate, Mr Laori Kwamoti, who was prevented from participating by INEC, has on Friday obtained a court order stopping the election and that is why you can see that the turn-out is very low.
“What they are doing today is like scoring a goal after the referee had blown off-side.” Bobboi said.
When contacted on the development, the Adamawa Resident Electoral Commissioner, Alhaji Abba Baba-Yusuf, said he was not aware of any court order stopping the election.
“We have not received any court order, as such we going ahead with the election”, Baba-Yusuf said
