The Presidential Election Petition Court, on Monday dismissed the application filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to inspect the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), allegedly used in collating the February 23 general election.

The 5-man panel headed by Justice Mohammed Garba, unanimously held that granting such application at this interlocutory stage would affect the substantive petition since issues have been joined by parties on the existence or otherwise of the server.

Dissatisfied with the Ruling, Counsel for Atiku and PDP, Chief Chris Uche and Chief Mike Ozekhome said they will appeal against it, adding that Section 151 of the Electoral Act affords them access to the server and other materials used by the commission in conducting the election.
