In a strange twist at the Kaduna State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, the Independent National Electoral Commission (lNEC) has objected the adoption of the deposition made by one of its staff who appeared as a witness before the Governorship Election Petition Court in Kaduna.
The rejection came a day after Mr Bonet Gwaza, a Senior System Analyst with INEC, presented some governorship election documents before the tribunal.
Included in the documents he presented were the INEC voters register for Kauru, Lere, Zaria and Igabi Local Government Areas (LGAs); BVAs report and Form EC40G for Igabi West constituency.
INEC Counsel, Abdullahi Aliyu, objected to the validity and admissibility of its own documents.
He was supported by counsels to Governor Uba Sani and All ProgressivesCongress(APC), who said they would file reasons for the objection in their final written addresses.
But the tribunal admitted the documents and deposition made by Gwaza, who appeared as witness for the PDP governorship candidate, Isa Ashiru.
