The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is currently in a meeting with the House of Representatives Committee on Electoral Matters and Political Parties Matters for the presentation of the INEC 2019 election budget.
The electoral commission had taken to their twitter page to tweet about the on-going meeting:
“Happening Now…..INEC 2019 General Elections Budget Presentation by Chairman INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu and members of the Commission before the House Committee on Electoral and Political Parties Matters,” INEC tweeted.
The 2019 election budget is being presented to the committee by the INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu.
Just yesterday, the Federal High Court in Abuja, had insisted that INEC chairman Mr. Mahmood Yakubu, must be arrested and produced before it on August 16 to face contempt charge against him.
A Court of Appeal presided by Justice Abdul Aboki had on Monday suspended the bench warrant issued for the arrest of Mr Yakubu by the lower court on August 8.
Mr Pam’s initial order was made after Mr Yakubu failed to appear in court for the third time, over a case involving Anambra State politics.
Recall that, the Senate president Bukola Saraki and Speaker, House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara on Tuesday said they refused to reconvene the National Assembly because the joint committee on electoral matters has not met with officials of INEC.
