PDP Accuses INEC Of Replacing Servers to Alter Presidential Election Results

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Nigeria’s opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of replacing all the servers in its headquarters and state offices to conceal the alleged rigging in the last Presidential election.

In a statement issued in Abuja late Monday by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP said the action was in a desperate attempt to change the actual results of the presidential election transmitted from the polling centers across the nation.

The opposition’s spokesman said the alleged replacement of the servers was “completely reprehensible” which it claimed had further exposed the culpability of INEC in the alleged manipulation and rigging of the election.

Ologbondiyan claimed that the PDP has been briefed on how the INEC leadership and officials of the Presidency became jittery and resorted to the desperate measure, after they realised that the servers had information of its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar’s victory at the election.

“Our party also has details of how the INEC leadership and the presidency agents procured and detailed computer experts to the commission’s offices to switch the servers, mutilate vital information in the system and attempt to erase all trails of transmitted results to the main server.

“Moreover, our party has been informed about how the INEC leadership, several weeks after the election, used some compromised officials of the commission to manipulate voter registers in some states by ticking names of individuals who did not participate in the Presidential election, as having voted.

“This is with the view to using such to cover the fictitious results it wrote for the All Progressives Congress (APC).’’

Mr Ologbondiyan said that forensic investigation of the system would reveal the real votes transmitted from the polling centers’’ the PDP image maker boasted.

Following this, the PDP insisted on forensic examination of all relevant documents and equipment used for the Presidential election.’’

The INEC’s reaction to the PDP latest allegation was similar to the previous ones.

Speaking, the Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman, described the allegations, as baseless.

Oyekanmi was quoted as saying that the INEC would not join issues with the PDP on a matter before a competent court.

Recall that the INEC on Wednesday, February 28, 2019 declared incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner after polling total of 15, 191, 847 votes to defeat his closest rival and the PDP candidate Atiku Abubakar, who scored 11, 262, 978 votes.

However, in another twist, Atiku in a part of his 139-page petition claimed that the official INEC result as saved in its server indicated that he polled a total of 18,356,732 votes to defeat Buhari who scored 16,741,430 votes.
