Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal yesterday admitted in evidence INEC Form EC 25 B used by the Electoral Commission to distribute election materials to all the 23 Local Government Areas of the state for the April 11 governorship election.
The Tribunal Chairman, Justice Suleiman Ambrosa also admitted in evidence and marked as exhibits INEC Form EC 25 B (1) tendered by the PDP to prove the receipt of materials after the governorship election.
The Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal admitted the documents as the Rivers State APC Counsel, Akin Olujimi, SAN, deferred his objection to their admissibility to his final written address.
Explaining the relevance of Form EC 25 B (Material Receipt/Distribution) tendered in evidence by the PDP, counsel to the party, Chris Uche, SAN, told the tribunal that the forms proved that the Rivers State APC lied to the tribunal when they claimed that materials were not distributed on election day.
He said that the Form EC 25 B showed in documentary terms how election result sheets, incident forms, voters’ registers and other key election materials were distributed across the state.
Submitting further at the Rivers State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, Chris Uche, SAN, noted that the Form EC 25 B ( 1 ) (Election Materials Receipt, Reverse Logistics) indicated the submission of all election materials used for the governorship election back to INEC office as required by law.
The PDP counsel stated that the APC had falsely claimed that election result sheets were not distributed on election day, pointing out that the forms were tendered to inform the tribunal on the true position.
He stated that all documents tendered and admitted by the tribunal have proved that the governorship election held in Rivers State contrary to the assertion and propaganda of the APC.
Also yesterday, the PDP tendered additional voters’ registers and incident forms.
The PDP defence of Governor Wike’s election continues today when the party is expected to close her defence.
