The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said it will not allow the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last presidential election, Alh. Atiku Abubakar, to inspect the election matrials unless due process is followed.

The spokesman of the INEC chairman, Mr. Rotimi Oyekanmi who made this known to the media, did not, however, explain what the due process in this instance, would imply.

 Atiku headed to the court after losing the February 23rd election to President Buhari and filed an application to compel INEC to grant him access to materials used for the election and the court granted his prayer.

A statement released by PDP’s spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, last week said that despite the court order, INEC has refused to allow Atiku inspect the election materials.

 Oyekanmi while reacting to Ologbondiyan’s claim, said that INEC will comply with the court directive “if and when the commission receives the order”.

“It is common knowledge that since the declaration of the results of the presidential election, the commission has been busy with the multiple activities associated with the national assembly, governorship, state houses of assembly and federal capital territory elections. 

Only last Thursday, the commission presented certificates of return to senators-elect and house of representatives members-elect, including PDP members. Nevertheless, the commission will comply when the due process is followed” he said.
