Tribunal grants Tinubu, APC permission to inspect election materials
The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) has granted the request of President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), to inspect election materials from February 25.
On Wednesday, a three-member panel of the appeal court granted the reliefs sought by Tinubu and APC in their fourth motions ex-parte, with the exception of Tinubu’s prayers 5 and 6.
Meanwhile, Peter Obi, the Labour Party, LP presidential candidate, has urged his supporters not to use the court as a rallying point.
Obi would be physically present at the Appeal Court today for the hearing on the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) application to set aside an earlier order granting Obi and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) permission to inspect the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machines.
The Labour Party is contesting the results of the 2023 presidential election, which elected Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as president-elect.
The Labour Party candidate advised his supporters to maintain peace and to respect “the sanctity of the court premises” at all times.
“As we seek redress for our stolen mandate, I implore OBIdients to respect the sanctity of the courthouse and to allow our legal team the space and tranquility to perform its duties.
“The Courthouse is not and should not be used as a rallying place. Obi wrote on his verified Twitter account, “I urge the Obidients to conduct their affairs peacefully.”
