Actor-cum-politician Kenneth Okonkwo has mocked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over its inability to present witnesses at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.

The electoral body did not present its witnesses before the tribunal on Monday as scheduled.

This prompted the tribunal led by Justice Haruna Tsammani to adjourn sitting till Tuesday.

Reacting to the development, Kenneth mocked INEC, saying it is unsurprising that the electoral umpire is having ‘technical glitches’ in presenting witnesses before the tribunal.

He further lamented the waste of fuel used in driving down to the court premises for the case.

Taking to Twitter shortly after the court adjourned sitting, Kenneth wrote: “Today was slated for INEC to open their case at the Presidential Election Petition Court. Not surprisingly they failed to produce any witness, claiming their witness disappointed them.

“Must INEC continue to have ‘technical glitch’ even in their own case? What a waste of fuel, which this APC government has raised beyond the reach of ordinary Nigerians like us. The petition is adjourned to tomorrow, 4th July, 2023, for continuation of hearing.”
