The commission said the jugdement can only be effected if the order of the appeal court is served the commission. It said it was when such judgment is served on it that it will immediately comply with it.
 
Chief Press Secretary to the Chairman of the commission, Mr. Rotimi Oyekanmi, stated this in an interview and said, “Yes, the judgment as we followed it shows that we must replace the name of Ibrahim with that of Jegede.

“We will obey the judgment because this is an order coming from a superior court. We will abide by that decision. However, we will expect that the judgment be served on us before Friday to enable us comply. When we are served, we will comply immediately.

“But we are not going to shift the date of the election. We have passed that stage. The election is going to hold on Saturday, November 24 as scheduled.”
