INEC: There is nothing like technical glitches in court, the Judges are not technicians - Kenneth Okonkwo

According to the news published by Premium Time Newspaper, One of Peter Obi's spokespeople and attorneys, Kenneth Okonkwo, addressed the Labour Party court case and the purported absence of complete evidence during a press conference in front of the Presidential Election Tribunal court in Abuja. Okonkwo rejected the Independent National Electoral Commission's (INEC) assertions that there were technical problems with their system and underlined that judges lack technical knowledge.

During today's court hearing, Okonkwo chastised INEC for its conduct, saying that they reflect poorly on the official election arbiter. Before getting the Certified True Copy (CTC) of the election results, he claimed, INEC had already declared the results.

How can you announce results that you don't have? he demanded.

He outlined the law's requirement that INEC gets the entire CTC, including a breakdown by voting units, before declaring the results. Even though it is two to three months after the election, Okonkwo claimed that INEC is unable to produce even 70% of the claimed evidence.

As he continued, Okonkwo encouraged INEC to be genuine with Nigerian citizens and highlighted that the court's responsibility is to uphold justice, not to be an expert in any particular field. He urged INEC to provide the party with any relevant evidence so that they may successfully build their case.

The truth of Kenneth Okonkwo's assertions cannot be independently verified based simply on this report, it is crucial to note. The material contained here is based on statements made by Kenneth Okonkwo during the press conference.
