Ebonyi tribunal rejects APC’s request to inspect poll materials

2015-06-02 14:04

Abakaliki - The election petition tribunal sitting in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State on Monday struck out a motion filed by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ebonyi Central Zone, Vincent Anyigor, praying the tribunal to grant his request to inspect the electoral materials used in the senatorial election held on March 28.

He is challenging the declaration of Obinna Ogba of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the winner of the election.

The tribunal struck out the motion for not being properly filed.

Counsel to Anyigor, Nnamdi Okorie, had prayed the tribunal to grant an order compelling Obinna Ogba and the PDP, the second and third respondents in the petition to make available the photocopies of the materials used in the election.

In his argument, counsel to Ogba, Uche Ogulu told the tribunal that neither him nor his client were employees of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), to be in possession of electoral materials, urging it to strike-out the motion.
