"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.
