The Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party presidential candidates, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi have individually approached the Presidential Election Court to seek permission for the inspection of election materials used during last Saturday’s presidential election.
Fidel Info reports that Atiku and Obi have vowed to fight to reclaim their mandate in court and have refused to accept loss in the February 25 presidential election.
The President-elect, Bola Tinubu, asked the two candidates to join him in the effort to build the country in his acceptance speech after he was named the winner of the election on Wednesday. However, the two candidates rejected this offer of reconciliation.
In separate news conferences held on Thursday in Abuja, Atiku and Obi both addressed their supporters on the next steps to take.
Both presidential candidates asked PEC in Abuja for permission to examine election-related materials on February 25 in an effort to follow through on their campaign promises.
Two ex-parte motions they submitted to the PEC secretariat at the Court of Appeal, Abuja, contain their request.
The motions have been scheduled for hearing on Friday, with the Independent National Electoral Commission and two other parties listed as respondents.
