The Supreme Court Has Confirmed INEC’s Power To Deregister Political Parties


The Supreme Court on Friday, May 7 confirmed the Independent  National Electoral Commission (INEC) power to deregister political parties.

This confirmation was made in a lawsuit filed by one of the 74 political parties deregistered by INEC in February 2020.

Member of the Supreme court’s panel, Chima Nweze who delivered the lead judgment on the appeal filed by National Unity Party (NUP), said INEC rightly exercised its powers conferred on it by the Nigerian constitution in deregistering the party last year.
