No surprises in INEC list: Daniel heads to court

*Daniel rejects political solution, heads to court today

LAGOS—MORE than 18 hours after the legally prescribed deadline for the release of candidates list for the forthcoming general elections, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, yesterday, belatedly released the candidate lists in several States.
Among the States outstanding as at press time were Anambra, Kaduna and Niger.

This came as the Ogun State Governor, Gbenga Daniel’s faction, was expected in court today to vacate the order that made it compulsory for INEC to display former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s list.

The list released from INEC State offices showed little surprises with the conspicuous omission of Speaker Dimeji Bankole of the House of Representatives and Governor Gbenga Daniel and his loyalists who lost out in the list of nominees standing on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for various state and federal offices in Ogun State.

Governor Sullivan Chime, Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ike Ekweremadu and those aligned with them, however, came out from the cold to emerge as candidates of the PDP in Enugu State while Mohammed Abacha, son of erstwhile Head of State, Gen. Sani Abacha, made the list as the gubernatorial candidate of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, in Kano State.

All three serving Senators from Adamawa State including Senate Deputy Majority Whip, Senator Mohammed Mana were missing in the PDP list published in Yola.

The Daniel camp was, however, hopeful of a reverse of fortune as inside sources told Vanguard last night that Governor Daniel was at a meeting with President Jonathan till about 8pm trying to solve the Ogun state puzzle.

The option of a political solution that would have seen members of the Daniel camp surrendering their tickets to the Obasanjo camp was broached but Daniel immediately dismissed saying that even if he would surrender his own senate ticket but he could convince others in his camp to surrender theirs.

The outcome according to the sources is that Daniel’s faction will be at the courts today to vacate the order that made it compulsory for INEC to display former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s list.

According to the source; “things will start to happen from that point and the right list from Ogun State will be displayed”
Meantime, the major event slated for the President’s visit to the South_West tomorrow – the presentation of leadership flag of the PDP to Speaker Dimeji Bankole – will still hold in Ibadan.

Several constitutional lawyers nevertheless flayed the INEC inertia as a fundamental breach of the law. They were, however, not agreed on to the extent the violation could affect the dates already fixed for the election.

Little surprises

While Mr. Kayode Idowu, Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, told Vanguard that the list of candidates had been dispatched to the States and the FCT prior to the Sunday midnight deadline, a number of the States were at press time still holding on to the list contrary to the Electoral Act. Other Resident Electoral Officers hurried to release the list with a couple of them blaming the INEC headquarters for the delayed release of the nomination list.

Section 31(3) of the 2010 Electoral Act stipulates that: The Commission shall within 7 days, of the receipt of the personal particulars of the candidate, publish same in the constituency where the candidate intends to contest the election.

Violation of Electoral Act
Constitutional lawyer, Professor Itse Sagay, berated INEC for violating the 2010 Electoral Act by not publishing names of candidates that are to contest the 2011 general elections as stipulated in the Act.

He said: “Definitely it is in violation of the 2010 Electoral Act. They (INEC) are supposed to have published the names by now so that those whose names that should have been there but are not out ought to have corrected it. So that where there is need for legal challenge, they can take steps to challenge it. There is also need for people to look at the names and those not qualified or that which makes him or her not fit to be an elected person, will be taken to court to restrain such person.”

Another legal practitioner and human rights crusader, Mr. Bamidele Aturu, argued that though the commission erred by not publishing the names of candidates, the error should not be considered as a fundamental violation.

Said he: “There is no doubt that INEC has violated the Electoral Act but one should ask whether the violation is a fundamental one or not. In this case, I think the violation is a fundamental one but I must also state that, INEC has violated the law. But this violation does not necessarily need to lead to the cancellation of the whole election. Having said that I will advise INEC to be careful next time not to violate the law.”

In Abeokuta where the list was published last night the Obasanjo faction dominated the PDP list for Ogun State with Gen. Adetunji Idowu Olurin as the Governorship candidate and Tunde Oladunjoye as his Deputy. Senator Iyabo Obasanjo_Bello emerged as the senatorial candidate from Ogun Central, Mohammed Tahir Adetunji displaced Governor Daniel as the senatorial candidate for Ogun East while Chief Babatunde Fadun emerged as the candidate for Ogun West Senatorial District.

Others who lost out in the PDP list include the Deputy Governor, Alhaja Salmot Badru, who was replaced by Capt. Musa Kehinde Borokini for Ipokia/Yewa South Federal Constituency, Bankole was replaced by Peter Olusegun Alawode in Abeokuta South Federal Constituency while Mr. Gbenga Oduwaiye a current member of the house of Representatives was replaced by Salami Muideen Adegboyega in Odogbolu/Ijebu-Ode/Ijebu North east Federal Constituency.

In the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, list Senator Ibikunle Amosun was listed as the Governorship candidate with Prince Segun Adesegun as running mate while the former Deputy Governor of Ogun State, Alhaji Sefiu Adegbenga Kaka, was listed as the Senatorial candidate for Ogun East.

Olugbenga Obadara picked the Ogun Central Senatorial ticket while Babalola Kamar Odunsi picked the Ogun West Senatorial ticket.
Also on the list are Olumide Babatunde Osoba who picked the House of Representative ticket for Abeokuta North/Obafemi Owode and Odeda Federal Constituency, Samuel Olusegun Williams picked ticket for Abeokuta South, Abayomi Hunye, Ipokia/Egbado South, and Odeneye Kehinde Olusegun, Ijebu-Ode/Odogbolu/Ijebu North East.

Submission of nominations
Announcing the list in Abeokuta, the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Deacon Martins Okunfolami, said that 33 parties submitted nominations in the state with eight of them nominating only Presidential Candidates and running mates while the remaining 25 submitted nomination for various offices.

The Daniel camp was, however, hopeful of a reverse of fortune as inside sources told Vanguard that Governor Gbenga Daniel was at a meeting with President Jonathan till about 8pm trying to solve the Ogun state puzzle.

The outcome, according to the sources, is that Daniel’s faction will be at the courts today to vacate the order that made it compulsory for INEC to display former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s list.

The source said: “Things will start to happen from that point and the right list from Ogun State will be displayed”
Meantime, the major event slated for the President’s visit to the South_West tomorrow – the presentation of leadership flag of the PDP to Speaker Dimeji Bankole – will still hold in Ibadan.

Senator Gbemisola Saraki was listed as the gubernatorial candidate of Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, ACPN, and is to face Muhammad Dele Belgore, SAN, of the ACN, Alhaji AbdulFatah Ahmed of the PDP, Gbenga Olawepo of  DPP, and Alhaji Bolaji Khaleel of the ANPP in the coming gubernatorial election.

Outgoing Governor of the State, Dr. Bukola Saraki, was listed as the PDP senatorial candidate for the Kwara Central Senatorial seat being vacated by his younger sister, Gbemi while Senator Simeon Ajibola of PDP for Kwara South was cleared to contest for third term while former governor Muhammed Shaba Lafiaji was listed to contest from Kwara North.

The Allied Congress Party of Nigeria, ACPN, has Architect Lola Ashiru to contest for Kwara South Senatorial District, Alhaji Shuaibu Yaman Abdullahi, Kwara North, and Yisa Rukiyat Ajoke also of the ACPN will slug it out with Governor Bukola Saraki of the PDP  from Kwara Central.

The list of candidates as released by Delta INEC REC, Dr. Gabriel Ada, showed that the Governorship race would be contested by Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan, PDP; Great Ogboru, DPP, and Nkwoala Emeka, Labour.  The list of ACN candidates was, however, not released last night. Contesting on the platform of the PDP for the Senate are Senator James Manager, Delta South;  Okowa Ifeanyi Arthur, Delta North, and Ighoyota Amori, Delta Central.

The senatorial candidates of the DPP are Ned Nwoko, Delta North; Ogwilaya Ufuoma, Delta South, and Ewherido Akpor Pius, Delta Central.

Governor Sullivan Chime of the PDP made the list of ten governorship candidates released by INEC for the April election in Enugu State.

All the Senatorial, House of Representatives and State Assembly candidates elected by Governor Chime’s faction of the party, including the Deputy Senate President, Chief Ike Ekweremadu, also made the list against speculations that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC had accepted the list of Chief Engr. Anayo Onwuegbu as the PDP governorship candidate as ordered by an Abuja Federal High Court.

But the INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Josiah Uwazuruonye, explained after releasing the list of candidates that the PDP list displayed was not final as the commission was awaiting the final decision of the court in Abuja regarding the list of candidates from the two factions of the party before taken final decision on the candidacy.

He said the list from the Governor’s faction was displayed based on the commission’s belief that the ex-parte order of the court stopping it from accepting any list of candidates other than that containing the names of Onwuegbu and 38 others was deemed to have expired after seven days.

Uwazuruonye said: “I have not read the Court order on the Enugu PDP list but the list we have here came from our office in Abuja.  But I can tell you that from what I have read in papers, we are aware there is an order of the court regarding Enugu PDP but since it is an interim (ex-parte) order it elapsed  after seven days. We are waiting for the final decision or an interlocutory order of the court on the matter to enable us determine the actual candidate of PDP in the state.”

In the list of governorship candidates displayed at the INEC office at about 2 pm yesterday, were Barrister Sullivan Iheanacho Chime (PDP), Chief Okey Ezea (Labour Party), Dr. Daniel Chukwuma Shere (People for Democratic Change, PDC), Pastor Ikechukwu Venatius Omenkeukwu (Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN), Charles Ibe (Congress for Demcractic Change, CDC), Chief Jonathan Nweke (Hope Democratic Party, HDP), Nwokedi Ofor (Africa Liberation Party, ALP), Chinonyelum Odumejemba (National Conscience Party, NCP, Ichie Paul Okafor, ANPP, and Chief Emma Ugwu, CPC.

The list of other candidates including those of Senate, House of Representatives and House of Assembly were displayed at the various constituencies by the Local Government Electoral Officers of the Commission.

No fewer than 18 persons were listed by INEC to run for the April 2011 gubernatorial election in Imo State.
