Atiku Abubakar’s communications adviser, Daniel Bwala, has criticized INEC for failing to launch its defense against allegations that it tampered with the results of the 2023 election.
After 10 days of recess, INEC still hadn’t opened its defense at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
This was because the electoral body’s witnesses didn’t show up to the tribunal.
Bwala responded on Twitter, saying, “INEC failed to launch its defense after 10 days break; reason? Due to the absence of supporting evidence. “#Vuvuzela #hakunamatata”
A lawyer representing Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, has said that INEC is unprepared to defend itself in court. This is according to Levi Uzoukwu.
Uzoukwu addressed the panel after it resumed its Monday session without INEC’s witness.
But the lawyer said that unlike INEC, which has been inconsistent throughout the dispute, LP was ready to move on with its.
I don’t think INEC is prepared to defend this case, given the discrepancies and inconsistencies, and given what they’ve done.
