Atiku’s Petition Is A Mere Waste Of Time – INEC

The electoral body made the submission in its final address at the PEPT on Wednesday August 21.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has urged the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) to dismiss the petition filed by Atiku Abubakar and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). 

The electoral body made the submission in its final address at the PEPT on Wednesday August 21. INEC’s lawyer, Yunus Usman (SAN) insisted that Atiku’s petition was a mere waste of time as he and his party could not substantiate claims of the electoral commission having a server and transmitting results electronically. 

Usman said: “This is a worthless petition. INEC did not abandon its pleadings. It only extracted salient evidence from their (petitioners) witnesses.

“It would have been a waste of the court’s time to call witnesses when the petitioners failed to prove anything and admitted the issues we advanced in our pleadings

“We urge the court to dismiss this petition, which was meant to test the water with two legs, and they are now falling.”
