Atiku Abubakar

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in its final submissions in the petition by Atiku Abubakar and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says it was all a mere waste of time.

The electoral commission through its counsel lawyer, Yunus Usman (SAN), therefore prayed the court to dismiss the petition, while adopting his clients’ final addresses before the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) on Wednesday.

The INEC counsel also dismissed claim that his client has a server, which was used to transmit results electronically and that it abandoned its pleadings by not calling any witnesses.

Usman said: “This is a worthless petition. INEC did not abandon its pleadings. It only extracted salient evidence from their (petitioners) witnesses.

“It would have been a waste of the court’s time to call witnesses when the petitioners failed to prove anything and admitted the issues we advanced in our pleadings

“We urge the court to dismiss this petition, which was meant to test the water with two legs, and they are now falling.”
