Parts of the documents admitted by the tribunal sitting in Abuja were; INEC Form EC 25 B and Form EC 25 B (1) for different wards in different local government areas of the state. The tribunal also admitted more voter registers and incident forms in addition to the ones it had earlier received. Counsel to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr Chris Uche (SAN), contended that election was held in the state. He explained that each form he tendered played specific role during the election. According to Uche, Form EC 25 B indicated areas where electoral materials were distributed to during the April 11 election in the state. Uche said that Form EC 25 B (1) known as the ‘Reverse Material Logistic Form’ showed that all election materials used were submitted to INEC office as required by law. Uche told the tribunal that the forms were proof that the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state lied to the tribunal when it alleged that materials were not distributed on the election day. He said that the Form EC 25 B showed how election result sheets, incident forms, voter registers and other key election materials were distributed across the state. Uche said that the documents were tendered to counter the APC’s false claim that election result sheets were not distributed on the election’s day. He said that all the documents so far tendered before the tribunal were proof that the governorship election was held in Rivers contrary to the “assertion and propaganda of the APC.” Meanwhile, the APC counsel, Mr Akinlolu Olujimi (SAN), has said that he deferred his objection to all the documents tendered till the time he will be given his final address. The tribunal Chairman, Justice Suleiman Ambursa, adjourned sitting till Tuesday for the PDP to continue with it defence.]]>
