The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been given a 3-day ultimatum by the Labour Party (LP) to allow its lawyers and agents to inspect the Bimodal Voter Authentication System (BVAS) machines alongside other electoral materials or face the Obidient movement.
Chief spokesman, of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council (LPPCC), Tanko Yunusa told Saturday Tribune this in a telephone interview.
Yunusa noted that the electoral body has decided to choose what court order to obey and disobey.
He stated that INEC has gone ahead to start configuring the BVAS despite the court order allowing them to inspect them.
He lamented that this would tamper with the result of the Presidential Election for which the LP requested for inspection of the machines.
His words: “They have begun configuring the BVAS machines.
“They denied us, and have not allowed us to have access to the BVAS Machines at all, these are the issues.
“And we are saying that if they do not allow us we would be forced to call all our people to come out and mobilise ourselves to go to the INEC office and demand the rights of the people based on the last election.
“They are disregarding the court order and they have gone ahead to do what they want to do based on the order of the court that gives them the room to say that they can reconfigure.
“They refused to obey the court order that says they should give us the right to inspect the BVAS before they re-configure the machine.
“They took the matter to the court. The Court said they should grant access to the Labour Party to inspect the election materials and also gives them the right to reconfigure the BVAS.”
