0

Some presiding officers in Borno and Yobe states say they transmitted results of the February 23 presidential election to the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).


The All Progressives Congress (APC) had tackled Atiku, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), over his claim that results from INEC server showed that he won the election.


INEC also dismissed Atiku’s claim, saying the results he paraded were fabricated.
But the PDP presidential candidate had said he was willing to engage experts from Microsoft, IBM and Oracle to verify his claim.


Atiku and the PDP had said INEC pulled down the results from its server and replaced it with a doctored one to favour President Muhammadu Buhari.


According to INEC, figures from the 36 states and federal capital territory (FCT) gave Buhari 15,191,847 votes, while Atiku came second with 11,262,978 votes.


However, in his 139-page petition challenging the results at the election tribunal, Atiku said the results from INEC server showed he polled 18,356,732 votes to defeat Buhari who had 16,741,430 votes.


In their witness statement of oath, the presiding officers, about 13 of them, said INEC had during their training, instructed them on how to electronically transmit the results to its server.
