Festus Keyamo, the spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (APC) campaign Council has revealed that the Independent Electoral Commission, INEC, did not have a server for the just concluded 2019 general elections.
Keyamo while backing INEC’s claim that it had no server, said there was no electronic transmission of results because the Electoral (Amendment) Bill was not signed.
He tweeted, “There was NO electronic transmission of results because 1. Electoral (Amendment) Bill was not signed.The NCC & service providers said it was impossible since the entire country was not covered by networks & that there were many blind spots in NIG. from which it cannot be done.”
“The question that those gullible ones who believe the daft story of results in a server have not answered is simply this: since NCC & service providers said there were too many blind spots in NIG not covered by networks, how were those fake server results transmitted nationwide?
“If a handful of electoral officers were compromised to ‘transmit’ results to a ‘server’, then that server must have been stationed in Cameroon, but certainly not in Nigeria. We need to go and retrieve them for a tv documentary: HOW TO MAKE QUICK BILLIONS FROM A PHANTOM SERVER.”
DAILY POST had reported that, INEC’s lawyer, Yunus Ustaz Usman (SAN) in a counter affidavit on Thursday asked the Trubunal to dismiss PDP’s application to access the server and smart card readers.
He said, “They are asking us to bring something we don’t have,” he said.
Usman further called the Tribunal’s attention to its judgment on March 6 granting PDP access to inspect only election materials without the server.
