The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its presidential candidate in the last election, Atiku Abubakar were on Thursday granted one of their requests at the Presidential Election Tribunal.

Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, finally presented before the court cartons of documents as requested by the PDP and Atiku.

The lawyer to the PDP and Atiku (petitioners), Chris Uche, SAN, received documents contained in about 45 cartons, brought to the court’s sitting venue on Thursday.

On Wednesday, the court had insisted that the INEC Chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu and the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Zamfara State honour the request for the production of the documents listed in the subpoenas served on them by the court’s registry, upon an application by the petitioners.

PDP and Atiku’s lawyer, Uche told journalists, after the court’s proceedings on Thursday, that the petitioners will formally tender the documents on Friday when they are expected to close their case.

I suggest they remove the word 'independent' from Inec since they gave cocsistently shown that they actually represent the interest of the government in power not that of the masses. I've never seen or heard of a bias organisation like Inec.
