The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar has written a letter to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) requesting the commission to allow his party election materials used in the February 25 elections, in accordance with a court order.
The letter was signed on Thursday by his lead attorney, Joe-Kyari Gadzama.
The Court of Appeal granted Atiku and his representatives the right to investigate, scan, make copies, and conduct forensic investigations. Furthermore, they could obtain certified copies of all voting records used in the conduct of the presidential election.
The court in order number six specifically allowed Atiku to carry out forensic examination/analysis of the BVAS machines/devices. As well as all information stored in the server/IREV/backend/clouds, amongst others.
According to the letter, Atiku’s representatives led by Adedamola Fanokun, (office of the PDP National Legal Adviser) returned to the commission. They were fully ready to commence inspection, examination and obtaining of the electoral materials as ordered by the court. However, they were informed by the commission’s legal registry that no instruction from the commission had been given.
