The Court of Appeal has turned down the request of the Labour Party’s Presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Gregory Obi seeking to stop the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, from reconfiguring the BVAS equipment used for the conduct of the February 25 Presidential election.
It would be recalled that the former governor of Anambra state had stormed the court to ensure that the request of the electoral body to wipe off all information on the BIVAS machine isn’t granted
However, the court has now turned down Peter obi’s request
Stating the reason, the court said if Peter obi’s request is granted and the BIVAS is not reconfigured, it will jeopardize the electoral body in the conduct of the March 11 governorship and state house election.
Furthermore, the court said all the information needed about the accreditation during the election, has been uploaded into its backup server and could be accessed at anytime
