Court states why Atiku’s request to observe BVAS reconfiguration, other were dismissed

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has dismissed two motions filed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), President-elect, Mr Bola Tinubu and the All Progressives Congress (APC). 

The first motion (marked CA/PEC/13m/2023) sought the court's permission for the PDP and Atiku to observe the reconfiguration of the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machines by INEC officials. 

The second motion (ex-parte), filed on March 14, requested an order from the court to serve Atiku's processes on Tinubu and the APC by substituted means. 

However, the Counsel to Atiku and PDP, Mr Ifeanyi Iboko, informed the court that he had filed a notice of discontinuance in respect of the two motions. 

The lawyer explained that he was withdrawing the motions because they have been overtaken by recent events. The Court of Appeal subsequently dismissed the two motions in a brief ruling.
