He further alleged that the party is planning to use the military inquiry reports when delivered to upturn the Supreme Court judgement.

Few months back, the military had constituted a panel of inquiry into the operations of its officials in the governorship election, after the APC alleged that the military connived with the Peoples Democratic Party to rig the election in Fayose’s favour.

They went to Kaduna and after all submissions, they want to now come up and say that military rigged Ekiti election.

“They are releasing their report very soon and they want to come back and say that, knowing fully that the military report holds no water in law, the attorney General of the nation or other agencies of the Federal Government will want that report revealed and that will be issued in Kaduna any time from now.

“They want to use that and approach the Supreme Court to review its position which is not known to law,” he alleged.
