Consequent upon a subpoena issued on the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Mahmood Yakubu and its Resident Electoral Commissioner for Zamfara state, the commission on Thursday presented documents before the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) as requested by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the last presidential election, Atiku Abubakar.
The documents contained in about 45 cartons, brought to the court’s sitting venue on Thursday, were received by lawyer to the PDP and Atiku (petitioners), Chris Uche (SAN).
The court had, on Wednesday, insisted that the INEC Chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu and the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Zamfara State honour the request for the production of the documents listed in the subpoenas served on them by the court’s registry, upon an application by the petitioners.
