Since Court Gave Order For INEC To Allow Us Inspect Materials, INEC Has Not Allowed Us-LP Chairman

The Labour Party National Chairman, Mr Julius Abure has stated that the Independent National Electoral Commission has not allowed his party to inspect election materials despite a court ruling.

Mr Julius Abure made this known yesterday (Thursday) in an exclusive interview with newsmen in Abuja.

Recall that the Appeal court sitting in Abuja had refused to vary the permission earlier granted to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Labour Party (LP) to inspect materials used by the commission in the conduct of the February 25 presidential election.

The Labour Party Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, who had earlier inaugurated his legal team to challenge the victory of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the last yesterday claimed that the election results announced by the electoral umpire were manipulated in favour of the former Governor of Lagos State.

Recall that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has also inaugurated his legal team to challenge Tinubu's victory in the court of law.

Reacting to the court ruling, Julius Abure said; "Tomorrow is here it’s not far. Since the court gave the order for INEC to allow us to inspect materials, INEC has not allowed us."

Julius Abure said lawyers and technical experts of the Labour Party have been going to the INEC office every day and they have not been allowed access to inspect the materials.
