(NEWSFLASH) 2019 Polls: Results Not Transmitted Electronically – INEC CHAIRMAN

INEC CHAIRMAN, MAHMOUD YAKUBU 

The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Professor Mahmoud Yakubu has confirmed that the results of the last general elections was not transmitted electronically.

He consequently debunked the claims by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its last presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, that the results were transmitted electronically.

It would be recalled that the opposition PDP and Atiku are confronting the outcome of the last presidential election before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, PEPT, claiming victory of the election by virtue of some results they got from a certain server, into which they said INEC trasmitted the results of the election.

During proceedings of the PEPT on Tuesday (today) morning, lawyer to President Muhammadu Buhari, Alex Izinyon (SAN), played a video, where INEC Chairman said his commission could not transmit results electronically, because of inadequate communication facilities/coverage in the country and the challenge of cybersecurity.

The SAN further tendered a digital video disc, DVD, which contained the interview Yakubu granted to a private television station, in which he gave details of the challenges of transmitting results electronically.

The DVD was admitted as Exhibit: P85, while the certificate of compliance, tendered with it, was admitted as Exhbit: P86.
