Withdrawing its brief of argument already filed yesterday, INEC lawyer, Barr. Tanimu Inua told the court that the commission is not urging the court for anything.


When the court asked what INEC is urging the court to do, Inua said that INEC will rely and abide by the decision of the court.

"To what end is your brief that does not urge anything? What do you urge? You must urge something or you withdraw your brief. You can't come here to file a brief without asking for something. You must urged for something or you withdraw your brief and keep quit." Hon. Justice H.M Ogunnwumuji tells Barr. Tanimu Inua who appeared for INEC.
