Bola Tinubu requests court order to obtain INEC materials for defence



The president-elect, Bola Tinubu has sought a court order to obtain materials from INEC to defend himself in court.


Bola Tinubu has urged the Court of Appeals to order the International  National Electoral Commission (INEC) to release to him some sensitive materials used during the 2023 elections.

This appeal from Bola Tinubu came after the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi sued INEC, Bola Tinubu and the APC for rigging the elections.

Speaking through his lawyer, Mr. Akintola Makinde, on Tuesday, March 7, Tinubu said: “The materials will be relevant in helping us to prepare our defense and also make comparison with the information contained in INEC’s back-end server.”
