The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has spoken on the petition filed by Atiku Abubakar urging the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT).
INEC’s lawyer, Yunus Usman (SAN) speaking on it said Atiku’s petition was a mere waste of time.
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.”
