Activist lawyer, Mr Ebun – Olu Adegboruwa , has warned the police against restricting human and vehicular movements on election days , saying it is unconstitutional .

According to him , the Federal High Court in Lagos had in 2014 pronounced that such movement restriction was unconstitutional .

The lawyer noted that despite the constitutional provisions and the pronouncement of the court, the Inspector – General of Police had on Friday , February 15, ahead of the postponed presidential election , announced the restriction of human and vehicular movements for 12 hours .

He complained that despite that the movement restriction was illegal , the police did not consider it needful to lift the movement restriction even after the election was postponed.

Adegboruwa warned the police against a repeat of the movement restriction order on the new election dates.

He said , “ The Inspector -General of Police did not appeal against this judgment of the court and yet he proceeded to hold people down at home on February 16, 2019, contrary to the express order of injunction granted by the court in this case against any repeated illegal practice of keeping citizens indoors.

“ We will therefore not condone or agree with any attempt to restrict people ’ s movement illegally on February 23 , 2019 or indeed any other day , by reason of elections. ”
Meanwhile , Socio – Economic Rights and Accountability Project has said the postponement of this year ’ s general elections should be blamed on successive governments since return to democracy in 1999 .

In a statement on Sunday by its Deputy Director, Kolawole Oluwadare , SERAP said , “ Given the increasing tendency to postpone elections and the cumulative failures and corruption over the years, SERAP would , after the elections, pursue appropriate legal action against the government in power and the National Assembly leadership for the catalogue of breaches of constitutional and international obligations , and seek effective remedies for the citizens. ”

  1. It’s appropriate time to make some plans for the future and
    it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you few interesting things or suggestions.

    Perhaps you could write next articles referring to this article.

    I desire to read even more things about it!

  2. Thanks a lot for the helpful article. It is also my opinion that mesothelioma cancer has an incredibly long latency period, which means that signs of the disease would possibly not emerge right until 30 to 50 years after the initial exposure to asbestos fiber. Pleural mesothelioma, which is the most common sort and has effects on the area throughout the lungs, will cause shortness of breath, chest muscles pains, plus a persistent coughing, which may bring on coughing up blood.

  3. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one? Thanks a lot!

  4. Greetings! I’ve been following your web site for some time now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout
    out from Huffman Tx! Just wanted to say keep up the fantastic job!

  5. I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours lately, but I by no means
    found any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful
    price enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did,
    the internet can be a lot more useful than ever before.

  6. She flicked off the lights and pushed him against the wall. A frame fell face down on the floor and shattered next to them. She didn’t allow him to take notice. She bit at his bottom lip, tugging his face, commanding him to follow her lead as she walked backwards down the hallway, deeper into the darkness, her darkness. And he, submitting to her bestial strength, simply weaved his fingers into the rust of her hair and bowed to her dominion. Like a lowly, unassuming insect, captivated by her hellfire glow.

    Halfway down the hall, she slammed him back first into the wall again, harder than before — no frames there that time. She clawed at his chest under his shirt as she ate his kiss once more and bit down his neck; the groans he breathed out into the obscurity flinched sharply as her fangs grew less and less forgiving.

    His buckle caught the flash of lamplight seeping in from somewhere outside as she tugged at the leather strap of his belt. She ran her fingers up and back down the front of his chest, back down to his waist, and unclasped his belt, plucking it from the loops with a single sliding pull. Feverishly, she tore his pants open and moved them, along with his boxers, down just enough to reveal his smug erection. With both palms on his board-firm chest, she smirked at him, kissed him once more, a little softer than before, and squatted down before him.

  8. I do believe all the ideas you’ve introduced in your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for newbies. May you please prolong them a little from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
