Recall that Obi and Labour Party, through their team of attorneys led by Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN), stated that the purpose of the application was to allow them to extract data embedded in the BVAS “which represent the actual results from Polling Units.”
INEC, represented by a team of attorneys led by Tanimu Inuwa, urged the court to deny the application.
