In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary Usman Sanni, the party described the postponement as “illegal” and vowed to pursue its case before an Abuja Federal High Court challenging the shift to a logical conclusion.
“The ruling party appears to have scored an ‘own goal’ having, by its inability to provide security and good leadership, disowned the system and the people and inadvertently admitted defeat at the elections,” the party said.
In its suit, which joined the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Alex Badeh and the Attorney-General of the Federation  (AGF) and Minister of Justice Mohammed Adoke (SAN) as defendants, HDP argued that the letter of information by the CDS and the NSA dated February 3 upon which INEC relied to postpone the elections from February 15 and 28 to March 28 and April 11, stating that they could not guarantee security for Nigerians, did not qualify as a natural disaster or emergency that could warrant election postponement.
The suit urged the court to declare that the purported postponement of the scheduled February 14 Presidential election was not in conformity with the provisions of the law since there was no natural disaster or natural emergency.
