A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has on Wednesday, March 4, 2015 ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to register the Young Democratic Party, YDP ‎as political party with immediate effect.

The court led by Justice Ahmed Mohammed made the order while ruling the the suit filed against INEC by the party who were not allowed to register.

Mohammed maintained that YDP was deemed registered when INEC failed to inform the then political association of its decision not to register it as a political party within 30 days of receiving its application, as required under Section 78 (4) of the Electoral Act, 2010‎.

The electoral commission reportedly received the party’s application on April 1, 2014 but later on September 15, 2014 informed the applicant of its decision not to register the party.
