The Plateau Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has ordered INEC to release election materials to the party for scrutiny.

A statement issued by Mr Abraham Yiljap, Chairman, Media and Publicity Committee of the PDP, on Tuesday in Jos, said that t

he tribunal had also ordered INEC to release the Certified True Copies of the election results to the PDP.

“The tribunal’s action followed the ‘very urgent’ application filed by the PDP counsels on Monday April 1, 2019, requesting it to compel INEC to release the documents for inspection, ” the statement read.

NAN reports that though the three-member tribunal had two-members at its Monday session, it was yet to fix a date for its inaugural sitting.
Already, the PDP legal team has filed 10 petitions before the tribunal handling case arising from National Assembly and the State House of Assembly elections.

”The cases were all filed within the time specified and have been duly acknowledged,” Abraham said.
