INEC BIVAS’s reconfiguration: Obi begs supporters to stay away from court

The Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate in the February 25 presidential election, Peter Obi, has appealed to his supporters to maintain decorum by respecting the judiciary and not to turn the court into another rally-ground. 

This appeal is coming as Obi prepares to be physically present in the Appeal Court today for the hearing on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, application that seeks the set aside of the earlier order granted to both Obi and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to inspect the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System, BVAS, machines.

Obi and Atiku had sought and obtained the order of the Court to inspect INEC materials used during the presidential election.

However, the INEC is asking the court to set the order aside as it may affect the conduct of the gubernatorial election on Saturday considering that it needs to reconfigure the machines ahead of the Saturday’s polls. 

Obi has consequently appealed to his supporters not to flood the court premises but to allow his legal team the space and peaceful environment to carry out their duties.

“As we go about seeking redress for our stolen mandate, I plead with OBIdients to respect the sanctity of the Court premises and give our legal team the space and peaceful environment to carry out their duties.

“The Court Premises is not and should not be turned into a rally ground. I urge the Obidients to go about their businesses peacefully,” he tweeted
