The Supreme Court has denied an application by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the last presidential election, Atiku Abubakar, to access a supposed central server purportedly used by INEC for the last presidential election.
A five-man panel of the Supreme Court, led by Justice Datijo Mohammed, ruled on Tuesday that the appeal was a waste of time and without basis.
Justice Chima Nweze, who read the lead judgment, said: “I see no reason for departing from the reasoning of the lower court. I find that this appeal is without merit, and it is accordingly, dismissed.”
Other members of the panel – Justices Mohammed, Kumai Akaahs, Paul Galumje and Uwani Abba-Aji agreed with the lead judgment.
