INEC Asks Court To Adjust Order Granting Peter Obi Access To Election Materials.

The Independent National Electoral Commision (INEC) has asked that the presidential election petition tribunal amends the orders granted to the presidential candidates of the Labour Party, Peter Obi and the Peoples’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar.

Peter Obi of the LP and Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, on Friday, secured leave of the court to have access to all the sensitive materials used by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in the conduct of the election held on February 25.

INEC, in a motion on notice filed on March 4, asked the court to vary the order which restrained it from tampering with materials used for the election.

According to the commission it needs to reconfigure the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) for the governorship and state houses of assembly election.
