BREAKING NEWS: Supreme Court ruled against PDP access to inspect central server

……The Supreme Court has refused an application seeking to compel the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to allow the Peoples Democratic Party to inspect its central server.

The Supreme Court has refused an application seeking to compel the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to allow the Peoples Democratic Party to inspect its central server.

The court said the matter was still pending before the Court of Appeal.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that the PDP’s decision to approach the apex court “under the guise of requesting for fear hearing” had failed.

“Litigants should stop relying on the provision of fair hearing alone as it is not available to them just for the asking,” the court ruled.

The court said the law does not allow it to set aside a valid decision of the lower court, and decided that the reason adduced by the Court of Appeal in a previous decision against the inspection of the server was valid.
