JUST-IN: Atiku, Obi challenge Tinubu’s victory in court, demand election materials inspection

The Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party presidential candidates, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi respectively have approached to Presidential Election Court to seek permission for the inspection of election materials used during last Saturday’s poll.

Newsupdate247 reports Atiku and Obi refused to concede defeat in the February 25 presidential election, vowing to recover their mandate in court.The two candidates rebuffed the gesture of conciliation made by the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, who in his acceptance speech after he was declared the winner of the poll on Wednesday, asked them to support him in the task of building the nation.

Their request is contained in two ex-parte motions they filed at the PEC secretariat at the Court of Appeal, Abuja.Both motions, with the Independent National Electoral Commission and two others as respondents, have been listed for hearing on Friday (today).
