The legal team of the Labour Party on Monday met with officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja over the inspection of electoral materials used for the February 25 presidential election.

The head of the legal team, Dr Livy Uzoukwu, led 60 lawyers into the meeting and is expected to brief journalists afterwards.

At the parley, INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu assured the LP Legal Team that the Commission will provide all the documents it requested to prosecute its case.

“INEC has nothing to hide. Documents available at the HQ will be given immediately. We are meeting with Resident Electoral Commissioners today and we will discuss how other documents at the state level could also be made available to you speedily,” Yakubu

Recall that the party had earlier obtained a court judgement directing the electoral umpire to allow it inspect the materials used for the February 25 polls.
