In order to allow Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and Peter Obi of the Labour Party to check the materials used for the previous presidential election, "the Independent National Electoral Commission has asked the Presidential Election Petition Court to modify the orders."
According to PUNCH, "INEC requested a court modification of the injunction prohibiting it from tampering with election-related materials in a move on notice submitted on March 4."
"The Bimodal Voter Accreditation System needed to be modified," according to the commission, "in preparation for the upcoming election."
Recall, On February 3, "the Court of Appeal in Abuja approved Obi and Atiku's plea for access to all the sensitive materials INEC used to conduct the presidential election that was held on February 25."
PUNCH further reported, "They argued that the requested records would support their petition challenging the announced victory of Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress candidate, in the presidential election."
Recall, Bola Tinubu, "the All Progressives Congress's candidate and the winner of the closely fought election, was declared the victor last Wednesday."
With 8,794,726 votes, Tinubu defeated the candidates for the LP and the Peoples Democratic Party, "who received 6,984,520 and 6,101,533 votes, respectively." Source added.
