There Are No Election Results On Our Server, Atiku’s Figures Are False – INEC

There Are No Election Results On Our Server, Atiku’s Figures Are False – INEC

The
Independent National Electoral Commission has distanced itself from the
“server results” which the Peoples Democratic Party and its
presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, are laying claim to as the “true
results” of the February 23 election.  

INEC said this in its reply to the petition filed before the
Presidential Election Petition Tribunal by the PDP and Atiku to
challenge the outcome of the February 23 election. The commission,
through its lead counsel, Yunus Usman (SAN), said the results of the
poll were never transmitted or collated electronically.  

It added that it kept no such server where such electronically
transmitted results could have been obtained. INEC had on February 27,
2019 declared that the All Progressives Congress alongside its
candidate, President Muhammadu Buhari, won the February 23 election with
15,191,847 votes to defeat his closest rival, Atiku, who it said polled
11,262,978 votes. But the petitioners stated that “from the data in the
1st respondent’s (INEC’s) server…the true, actual and correct results”
from the “state to state computation” showed that Atiku polled a total
of 18,356,732 votes to defeat Buhari who they said scored 16,741,430
votes.  

They said the results were the total votes scored by the candidates
in 35 states and the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, as there was “no
report on sever” about the results from Rivers State as of February 25,
2019. By calculation, Atiku and the PDP claimed to have defeated Buhari
by 1,615,302 votes. But the commission, urging the tribunal to dismiss
the petition, said in its reply filed on April 10, that the petitioners’
claims were false.  

The INEC’s Director, Information and Communications Technology, Mr
Chidi Nwafor, in his witness statement on oath attached to the reply,
specifically denied the “server results” which the petitioners were
laying claim to. He said all the results were collated manually and were
never transmitted electronically.    

Nwafor added that Buhari was duly elected by majority of the lawful votes cast at the presidential election.

He stated, “That the petitioners are claiming that votes recorded at
the various polling units were electronically transmitted, and stored in
the 1st respondent’s (INEC’s) server. That the petitioners are also
claiming that based on the server contents, they and not the 2nd and 3rd
respondents won the presidential election.

“That these claims of the petitioners are false as I know as a fact
that the 2nd respondent was duly elected by majority of the lawful votes
cast at the presidential election and scored at least a quarter of the
lawful votes cast at the election in 33 states and the Federal Capital
Territory, Abuja, more than two-thirds of all the states of the
federation and the Federal Capital Territory.”  

Nwafor also stated, “That the petitioners did not win the majority of
the lawful votes cast and did not satisfy the mandatory constitutional
requirement to be declared winner having polled 11,262,978 and one
quarter of all lawful votes cast in 29 states and the Federal Capital
Territory, Abuja as against the 2nd respondent who scored 15,191,847
votes cast and one quarter of the lawful votes cast in 33 states and the
Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.  

“That the lawful and recognised computation of results is manually
done using Electoral Form EC8 series and not the table pleaded by the
petitioners given that the said table is not the result collated and
declared by the 1st respondent. That I know as a fact that the details
contained in the table in the paragraph 22 of the petition are
inaccurate.  

“That I know that mode of transmitting/collating election results is
manual, using Forms EC8As, EC8Bs, EC8Cs and EC8Ds and not electronically
done. That I know that the Manual Technologies 2019 and demonstration
videos referred to in paragraph 27 are internal training materials.”
