The Election Petition Tribunal for the February 23rd presidential election has granted access to President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) to inspect the materials used for the elections.
President Buhari and the APC had applied in separate motions for ex parte orders to be granted to them to inspect the materials.
The applications were made in preparation of its defence team against expected petitions to be filed by Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenging the outcome of the election.
Earlier on March 6, 2019, the tribunal, led by Justice Abdu Aboki, granted same order to PDP to inspect the election materials. In the ruling issued on Thursday, the tribunal granted Buhari and APC permission to inspect the electoral materials and obtain certified copies of the documents from INEC.
