The Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council on Tuesday disclosed that the lawyers of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, are making progress with their inspection of electoral materials for the February 25 presidential poll.

The development is coming barely 24 hours after the LP legal team met with the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, who promised that the commission would give the legal team access to the materials.

The Monday meeting with INEC chairman came after the LP issued threats to embark on a nationwide protest and picket INEC offices over the alleged failure of INEC to grant them access to poll materials as ordered by the court.

The head of the LP’s legal team, Dr Livy Uzoukwu (SAN), who led 60 lawyers to the meeting with INEC chairman, had urged INEC to urgently make the polls materials available as the team was running against the deadline to file its petition against the outcome of the presidential poll.

Former Governor of Rivers State, Chibuike Amaechi has described the State Governor, Nyesom Wike as a drunk.

According to Amaechi, Wike spends N50 million on alcohol every week, insisting that the Governor is planning a third-term in office through his stooge and governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the state, Siminalayi Fubara.

Amaechi stated this on Tuesday when he campaigned for the All Progressives Congress, APC, governorship candidate in the state, Tonye Cole in Ogba-Egbema-Ndoni Local Government Area ahead of the March 18, 2023, governorship and State Houses of Assembly elections.

The former governor cried out that the amount of State funds being wasted on alcohol alone by the governor were enough to start and complete projects that would be of huge benefit to the people of the state.

Lana made his position known on Tuesday at a press conference, which was held at Iyaganku Quarters in Ibadan, the state capital.

The former Oyo State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice explained that he had consulted widely before stepping down to support the incumbent governor, adding that the decision was taken alongside the SDP House of Assembly candidates.

He said, “During my radio interview recently, I duly informed members of the public that wherever I step down it would be a decision by all candidates, especially the House of Assembly candidates of the SDP, of which I am the governorship flag-bearer.

“We have consulted widely; we have talked with some national officers of the party and my supporters among the trade unions, traditional rulers, market associations and religious bodies.
