Court Declines Peter Obi’s Request To Stop INEC From Resetting BIVAS

The reconfiguration of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) will go on, the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT) held yesterday.

It rejected the request by the Labour Party (LP) and its presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to restrain the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from tampering with information on the February 25 presidential election stored on the machines.

Obi and LP had sought to bar the commission from reconfiguring the machines until they inspect them and obtain a certified true copy (CTC) of the information retrieved. 

A three-member panel of the tribunal presided over by Justice Joseph Ikyegh, held that granting the prayer would hinder INEC’s preparation for the next round of elections.
