The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in February 23, Presidential election Mr. Peter Obi, has reacted to Monday`s Presidential Election tribunal’s rejection of  Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, legal team request to inspect the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), describing the commission’s behaviour as unfortunate.

Obi, who was in court was reacting to a question from judicial correspondents, said he has always respected the ruling of courts even where it’s not favourable, but find it shocking that in this day and age INEC who is supposed to be an independent umpire of an election will argue against subjecting itself to scrutiny when ordinary referees in a football match subject themselves to Video Assisted Referee (VAR) and even go further to visit it to enable them make more informed decisions.

He noted that with the development it would be extremely difficult for INEC to convince any discerning mind that it set out to conduct a free and fair poll when it takes strange positions that clearly show otherwise to critical members of the public.

Obi finally said the situation is particularly more worrisome that it’s coming at a time most of the international bodies that monitored the election are giving it low mark.
