The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has said that the server result of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar is not in any way genuine.
They accused Atiku and his camp of manufacturing results of the last presidential election to prove his case at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal, Premium Times reports.
The electoral umpire filed its response on Thursday at the tribunal in Abuja. It distanced itself from an electronic sheet that purportedly contained the genuine results of the presidential election.
Mr Abubakar’s legal team submitted the sheet at the tribunal last month, contending it was obtained from an internal compilation of results on INEC’s Internet server.
The team, amongst other submissions, said Mr Abubakar won by more than six million votes, but his victory was allegedly suppressed by the commission in favour of incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.
