Supreme court denies Atiku, PDP’s request to access INEC server

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.
