The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, has urged his supporters against protesting on court premises when the presidential election tribunal commences.
The Appeal Court will today hear the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) application seeking to set aside earlier order granted to both Obi and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to inspect the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System (BVAS) machines.
Obi and Atiku had obtained the order of the Court to inspect INEC materials used during the presidential election.
However, INEC is asking the court to set the order aside as it may affect the conduct of the gubernatorial election on Saturday.
Via his Twitter handle, Obi asked his supporters not to congest the court premises.
“As we go about seeking redress for our stolen mandate, I plead with OBIdients to respect the sanctity of the Court premises and give our legal team the space and peaceful environment to carry out their duties.
“The Court Premises is not and should not be turned into a rally ground. I urge the Obidients to go about their businesses peacefully,” he said.
