The presidential tribunal has rejected the request of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Atiku Abubakar, its presidential candidate, to access the server “used by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) during the 2019 general election”.

PDP and Atiku had prayed the tribunal to order INEC to grant them access to inspect the commission’s server and other electronic gadgets used by INEC in the February 23 presidential election. The electoral commission had responded saying it does not have a server where results of the presidential election were uploaded.

The application filed by the main opposition party and its presidential candidate was dismissed by the tribunal on Monday. In a unanimous ruling, the panel upheld the separation objections by the three respondents to the petitioners’ application.

The respondents include INEC, Buhari and his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC). Garba said INEC had denied having a server, adding that granting the application would imply that the court had “indeed recognised and found out that there is a central server into which results of the held on February 23, 2019 were electronically transmitted by the 1st respondent (INEC).”

He said the supreme court had on many occasions warned judges to desist from “making observations, comments or pronouncements in its rulings with any likely effect of prejudging the main issue that can be regarded as the issue to be tried in the course of trial.”
