During the hearing, PDP’s lawyer, Kingsley Obamogie, explained that the party’s application to assess electoral materials used in the election was in line with Section 151 of the Electoral Act, 2010, as amended.

Obamogie according to Daily Post argued that the section empowered the party to institute an ex-parte motion for the tribunal to inspect all the electoral materials used for the election.

The three-man panel of judges, after studying the motion, granted PDP’s prayer and ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to grant the opposition party access to materials used in the election.
