The Supreme Court has rejected the application seeking to compel the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to allow the Peoples Democratic Party to inspect its central server.
The Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered that the PDP’s choice to approach the apex court “under the guise of requesting for fear hearing” had slipped.
“Litigants should stop relying on the provision of fair hearing alone as it is not available to them just for the asking,” the court ruled.
The court stated the law does not permit it to set aside a valid decision of the lower court, and decided that the reason adduced by the Court of Appeal in a previous decision against the inspection of the server was real.
The PDP had urged the Supreme Court to compel INEC to enable them to inspect its server after submitting that the commission had a central server.
