Tribunal Grants Buhari Access to Electoral Materials

The presidential election petition tribunal has granted access to President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to inspect the materials used for the presidential poll.

The tribunal gave the order sequel to an ex parte motion filed by Buhari and his party.

The president and the APC, through their lawyers, argued that they needed to inspect the materials in order to defend themselves in the case of a petition.

The three-man panel led by Abdu Aboki had granted a similar request to Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on March 6.

At the tribunal on Thursday, the three-man panel permitted Buhari and the APC to inspect the materials and obtain the certified through copies of the documents from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Atiku is challenging the outcome of the election that held on February 23. Buhari had polled 15,191,847 votes to defeat his opponent who got 11,262,978 votes.
