President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) sitting at the Court of Appeal, Abuja to grant access to inspect electoral materials used for the February 23 presidential elections.
The request by President Buhari was brought on Thursday through an exparte application by his lawyers led by Wole Olanipekun (SAN).
The application, which is hinged on the provisions of Section 151 (1) and (2) of the Electoral Act, is asking the Court of Appeal to compel INEC to allow access to inspect and make copies of the documents and to be certified as true copies by the electoral umpire.
The application followed the similar request by the candidate of the PDP in the election, Atiku Abubakar, to compel INEC to produce the Voters Register, the Smart Card Reader Machines, Ballot Papers, site back ends, and other sensitive materials for inspection and scanning.
The application was granted on March 6 by the appellate court.
