INEC Bows To Pressure, Grants Peter Obi’s Lawyers Access To Inspect BVAS
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has granted the Labour Party and its legal team access to inspect materials used for the February 25 presidential and national assembly election, Pecohub reports.
The spokesperson of the Labour Party presidential campaign council, Tanko Yunusa, confirmed the development on Monday.
“Yes, they have granted us access, we are meeting with the chairman now. We have our team of lawyers and technical experts with us,” Tanko told The Whistler.
The approval by the electoral umpire comes following the threats by the LP to mobilize for a nationwide protest if the commission refuses to comply with the judgement of the Court of Appeal allowing the party to inspect election materials.
