Ekiti Election: Tribunal okays APC to inspect materials


The Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Ado Ekiti on Monday granted the prayers of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to inspect election materials and results of the July 14 governorship election in the state.

The APC was represented at the tribunal by Yomi Ariyo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who led six other counsel.

Justice Suleiman Belgore, while granting the prayers, explained that council had sought the order of the court to access the election materials, and to use forensic equipment to view the handwriting of the election result and the fingerprints of the election materials.

He also said the request was to obtain and photocopy all the election materials which were also in custody of the first respondent, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The tribunal chairman granted the application, saying this was also approved for the PDP.
