Abuja, March 6, 2023 – INEC on Monday approached the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal to vary an order it granted to the Peoples Democratic Party and Labour Party to inspect materials used for the last presidential election of Feb. 25.

The two parties had sought the order for proper investigations into their cases pending before the presidential election tribunal on the validity of the presidential election results.

The order was granted on Friday, March 4, when PDP and Labour Party approached the Supreme Court to withdraw an earlier suit which was later moved to the Presidential Election Tribunal.

INEC, in a motion on notice filed on March 4, had prayed the court to vary the order which restrained it from tampering with materials used for the election.

The commission said it needed to reconfigure the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System for the next round of elections.. (GBN)
