The Independent National Electoral Commission has urged the Presidential Election Petition Court to vary the orders that were granted to the candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party and Labour Party, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi respectively, to inspect materials used for the last presidential election.
Recall that the appellate court had on March 3, granted leave to Atiku of the PDP and Obi of Labour Party to inspect election materials used by INEC to conduct the February 25 presidential election.
INEC, in a motion on notice filed on March 4, is praying the court to vary the order which restrained it from tampering with materials used for the election.
In the application filed by the commission, the commission is asking the court to vary the order to allow it to reconfigure its BVAS for the March 11 governorship and state houses of assembly elections.
