As expected in an ex parte hearing, the respondents – President Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress and the Indpendent Electoral Commission – are absent and not represented by their lawyers.

Uche said during the Wednesday’s hearing the ex parte motion contained six prayers, one of which is seeking the tribunal’s leave to bring the motion before the pre-hearing session

He added, “Prayers 2 to 6 are in summary seeking orders of this honourable court to allow the inspection and production of election documents used by the Independent Electoral Commission for the conduct of the presidential election to enable the applicants to institute and maintain an election petition.”
