It has been alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission has thwarted the Labour Party's efforts to petition against the results of the 2023 presidential election. As a result, the Labour Party has threatened to call on its members to occupy offices of the commission across the country.
In a statement that was released on Saturday, Dr. Yunusa Tanko, who serves as the spokesperson for the Presidential Campaign Council of the party, alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had disobeyed the order of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal. The order instructed INEC to grant access to certified true copies of all materials used in the administration of the election to both the party and its candidate for president, Peter Obi.
Tanko mentioned that the order had been served on INEC on March 3, 2023, despite the fact that INEC was present and had representatives at the tribunal at the time the order was being made. According to Tanko, the electoral umpire had continued to ignore and disobey the order despite being reminded of it multiple times, including in a letter dated March 6, 2023, which was delivered to the headquarters of INEC in Abuja.
