Angered by the reported fraud that characterized the just concluded presidential election, the Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party presidential candidates, Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi respectively have approached the court seeking permission for the inspection of election materials used during last Saturday’s poll.

Recall that Atiku and Obi refused to concede defeat in the February 25 presidential election, vowing to recover their mandate in court.

The aggrieved duo snubbed the reconciliatory move made by the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, who in his acceptance speech after he was unceremoniously declared the winner of the poll on Wednesday, asked them to support him in the task of building the nation.

Atiku and Obi spoke at separate news conferences in Abuja on Thursday.

However, the both presidential candidates requested PEC in Abuja to allow them to inspect materials used for the February 25 election.

Their request is contained in two ex-parte motions they filed at the PEC secretariat at the Court of Appeal, Abuja.

Both motions, with the Independent National Electoral Commission and two others as respondents, have been listed for hearing on Friday (today).
