The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has in a riposte replied the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its Presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, on its reasons for denying the party access to inspect the election materials used during the presidential election.

The PDP had on Saturday accused the commission’s chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu of disobeying the ruling of an Appeal Court, which directed it to allow its candidate, Atiku access to inspect the documents and materials used in the presidential election.

The party equally accused INEC of colluding with the All Progressives Congress, APC, to deny its candidates victories which Nigerians have given them.

But reacting to the above allegations, spokesman of INEC chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi who spoke to TheCable, opined, “It is common knowledge that since the declaration of the results of the presidential election, the commission has been busy with the multiple activities associated with the national assembly, governorship, state houses of assembly and federal capital territory elections.

“Only last Thursday, the commission presented certificates of return to senators-elect and house of representatives members-elect, including PDP members.

“Nevertheless, the commission will comply when the due process is followed.”
