Other respondents in the case are the PDP and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The Chairman of the Tribunal, Justice Anthony Akpovi, said he gave the order after considering the application made by Adelabu on its merit and felt it would help the petitioners in maintaining their case against the respondents.

He ordered INEC to allow the petitioners and their agents to inspect and obtain all polling documents used in the March 9 governorship election in the custody of INEC.

Akpovi directed INEC to make available all ballot papers, voter registers and copies of all election materials in all polling units.
