Obi’s lawyer laments lack of access to essential documents

Obi’s lawyer laments lack of access to essential documents

Levi Onyeukwu, counsel to Peter Obi complained to the Tribunal, that his team is yet to get more than 70 percent of the documents from INEC, and other parties, especially documents from Rivers State. This is despite the INEC chairman’s promise to make the documents available.

The documents requested include result sheets from polling units and documents used to register voters.

It would be recalled that Obi’s petition was adjourned to enable all parties to identify documents to be objected to or not.

When Justice Haruna Tsammani asked Wole Olanipekun, if he has identified the documents, he said, “I don’t want to talk before him (Levi), in respect of that”.
