Tribunal: Atiku accuses INEC of frustrating petition against Tinubu

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission of denying him access to electoral documents despite paying N6 million.

Atiku is challenging the declaration of President of Bola Tinubu by INEC at the February 25 presidential polls.

Tinubu polled 8,794,726 votes to defeat 17 other candidates including Atiku with 6,984,520 votes and the candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi who polled 6,101,533 votes.

Atiku through his lead counsel told the presidential election tribunal on Tuesday that INEC’s refusal to provide the documents is frustrating the PDP candidate’s case.

Jegede said the team had to subpoena INEC officials to provide the required documents before the tribunal.

The documents requested to prove his case against Tinubu are results from 10 of 21 LGAs including Ankpa, Dekina, Idah, Ofu, Olamaboro, Yagba East, Yagba West, Kabba-Bunu, and Igalamela Odolu.
