"A collective reading of Section 134(1) of the Electoral Act which has been enacted as Section 285(5) of the Constitution , Paragraphs 4(1) and 14(1) and (2) of the First Schedule to the Electoral Act would prohibit an amendment if there is any alteration to the petition which affects the contents of the petition as laid out in Paragraph 4(1). The corollary to this is that the amendment will be allowed provided the alteration is not as to substance of the grounds upon which the petition is brought."
 
PER K. B. AKA'AHS, J.S.C. IN  INDEPENDENT NATIONAL ELECTORAL COMMISSION v. ABBA KABIR YUSUF & ORS         SC.972/2019 (CONSOLIDATED)
