Livy: We Would Focus On The Most Important Witnesses In The Case In The Three Weeks Allocated Us

According to reports from the Nigerian Tribune, Livy Uzoukwu has stated that INEC is withholding the documents in order to manipulate them before releasing them. This accusation is a serious one, as it suggests that INEC may be attempting to influence the outcome of the election in some way. 

Uzoukwu made these claims on Tuesday, May 23, while speaking with newsmen at the tribunal pre-hearing in Abuja. It is not yet clear what specific documents Uzoukwu is referring to, but the fact that he is making such a strong accusation suggests that he has reason to believe that INEC is not acting in good faith. 

The erudite lawyer disclosed that he and his team would focus on the most important witnesses in the case in the three weeks allocated to them.

He said: “We have written five letters indicating to pay and that we’re ready to collect those documents. The letters were duly received and endorsed by INEC. Why are they telling lies to say that we couldn't pay? This very unfortunate.

“What about the documents we have collected? Don’t we pay for them? Of course, we paid for them and those ones were given to us but refused to give us others.”
