The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has begun the legal process of contesting the recently-held presidential election which president Muhammadu Buhari was declared winner.
A three-man panel of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal in Abuja led by Justice Abdul Aboki, has Justices Peter Ige and Emmanuel Agim as members, hearing the ex-parte motion filed by the PDP and Atiku.
They are seeking an order granting them access to inspect the electoral materials used by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the Presidential election.
The ex-parte motion is praying for an order compelling INEC to allow them to inspect the register and other vital documents used in the conduct of the poll unhindered.
The ex-parte application filed by, Chris Uche, has INEC, President Muhamadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) as respondents.
