The gubernatorial candidate of the Labor Party for the 2023 election in Enugu State Chijioka Edeoga has petitioned the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, Mahmoud Yakubu alleging that the state’s Resident Electoral Commissioner, Chukwuemeka Chukwu, denied his team access to inspect electoral materials, especially the Voter Accreditation Systems BVAS.

Edeoga in a petition he issued to Yakubu lamented that the REC refused to allow his legal team and experts access to vital electoral materials despite being directed to do so.

The LP candidate had through his counsels written to the Inec Chairman, demanding access to the Bvas machines used in the March governorship election but after the alleged refusal of Rec to grant the access, a fresh letter was issued on Monday, July 6, 2023, reminding the Inec Chairman of the need to have access to the materials.
