The election petition tribunal in Oyo state has ordered INEC to allow Mr Adebayo Adelabu, governorship candidate of the APC, to inspect election materials used during last month’s governorship election.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had declared Mr. Makinde winner of the governorship election in the state.

 Chairman of the tribunal, Justice Anthony Akpovi, said he gave the order after considering the application made by Mr. Adelabu on its merit and felt it would help the petitioners in maintaining their case against the respondents.

He ordered INEC to allow the petitioners and their agents to inspect and obtain all polling documents used during the election such as all ballot papers, voter registers and copies of all election materials in all polling units which are in the custody of INEC.
