The Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal has dismissed an application filed by opposition candidate, Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), seeking permission to inspect the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) server, allegedly used in storing collated election results of the February 23, 2019 presidential election.

Justice Mohammed Garba, the Chairman of the panel, delivered the ruling on Monday.

Garba held that granting such application at this interlocutory stage would preempt the substantive petition.
