The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has insisted that he won the recently concluded Presidential election in accordance to stored election results in a server by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Atiku gave an indication that he will call Microsoft, IBM and Oracle experts to testify that he defeated President Muhammadu Buhari by over 1.6 million votes.
He gave the server name as INEC_PRES_RSLT_SRV2019 and its unique Mac address as 94-57-A5-DC-64-B9 with Microsoft Product ID 00252-70000-0000-AA535.
In his fresh response to the reply of INEC to his petition, Atiku said that he will also tender INEC’s training manual on elections, a printout of the votes of candidates from smart card readers and a printout of the forensic audit report on INEC’s server as evidence.
Atiku, who is former Nigerian Vice-President claimed that he polled a total of 18,356,732 votes to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who he said scored 16,741,430 votes.
However, INEC’s Director of Information and Communications Technology, Chidi Nwafor, in his witness statement on oath attached to the reply, specifically denied the “server results” which the PDP and Atiku claimed.
He said that all the results were collated manually and were never transmitted electronically.
