Election Tribunal: Senator Shehu Sani given approval to inspect INEC materials

On Thursday, Justice A. H Suleiman, the Tribunal Chairman, has granted the Senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Shehu Sani, his request to inspect the INEC collation result sheets for Kaduna Central Senatorial district which Uba Sani of the All Progressives Congress, APC, won.

Justice A. H. Suleiman is the Chairman of Kaduna State’s National and State Houses of Assembly Election Petition Tribunal in Kaduna State.

The relief came after an ex parte motion filed by the applicants: Shehu Sani and the Peoples Redemption Party, PRP, in petition No. EPT/KD/SN/M/02/19, demanding for the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to make results sheets and incident forms available for proper inspection.

In the ruling, the Tribunal Chairman, Justice A. H. Suleiman stated: “An order has been made to compel the 3rd Respondent (INEC) to allow the petitioners/applicants or their agents or assigns access to inspect documents (Form EC8A, Eze INEC incident forms) and result sheets of all polling units in the seven Local government Areas that make up Kaduna Central Senatorial district.”

“An order is also made on the 3rd Respondent to make available to the petitioners/Applicants certified True Copy of all the documents.”

Shehu Sani is challenging the victory of Uba Sani, who was declared winner of the Kaduna Central Senatorial district on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, at the Tribunal.

It was earlier reported that Senator Shehu Sani, who is a first timer to the Nigerian Senate, contested on the platform of the PRP when he wasn’t given an APC return ticket for the just-concluded election.
