The Court of Appeal has rejected the suit by the presidential candidate of the Labour Party to prevent the Independent National Electoral Commission from reconfiguring the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System machine.
INEC had approached the court to vary the request granted to Peter Obi on the inspection of election materials used in the 2023 presidential election.
In the ruling delivered on Wednesday, a three-member panel of the court of appeal led by Joseph Ikyegh, held that restraining the electoral commission would constrain INEC from conducting the March 11 elections.
In an application, Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), had sought an order of the court “restraining the 1st respondent (INEC) from tampering with the information embedded in the BVAS machines until the due inspection is conducted and certified true copies (CTC) of them issued”.
