The Resident Electoral Commissioner in Cross River State, Dr. Frankland Briyai, has said that the February 23rd, 2018 Supreme Court Judgment in the case between INEC and ANOR Versus Muri Edet Etim and Others over recognition of Law No. 7 was set aside because INEC is not bound to obey laws created by State Assemblies but only those made by the National Assembly and therefore cannot be made to obey Law. No 7.

Dr. Frankland bared his mind while fielding questions from members of the Association of Cross River Online Journalists (ACROJ), during a courtesy visit to his office.

It will be recalled that people of Bakassi had gone to court to compel INEC to recognize and conduct elections in the areas adjusted by the Cross River State House of Assembly under the controversial Law No. 7.
