Recall that the court of appeal granted leave to Obi and the Labour Party to have access to all the sensitive materials used by INEC in the last presidential election.

The former Anambra State governor said he is challenging the process by which INEC got the results that were announced. Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) was declared the president-elect. And apart from the Labour Party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), is also challenging the outcome of the poll in court.

Meanwhile, INEC Chairman, Professor Mahmoud Yakubu has reiterated that the Nigerian election governing body is ready to release all the materials and documents used during the presidential election for inspection.

Professor Yakubu assured the legal teams of Peter Obi, Tinubu and Atiku today when they met at the commission’s national headquarters.
