The admission by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) presiding officers that they transmitted the result of the presidential election to the commission’s server, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says, has vindicated them.
Concise News had earlier reported that the presiding officers in Yobe and Borno states revealed that they transmitted the results of the poll to the INEC server, contrary to what the commission is insisting on.
According to the Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Diran Odeyemi, Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the party, will reclaim his mandate.
“Nigerians should wait for more exposure of how INEC won the election for Buhari. Unfortunately for them, Atiku and indeed PDP were more than prepared for the election,” he told Punch.
“While we were campaigning moving from one state to the other, APC and INEC were planning how to rig the election knowing full well that Nigerians had rejected them.
“Evidence that APC were going to lose were reflected in the empty crowd at their campaign venues.”
This is as he noted that “In anticipation of the fact that they were going to rig, PDP did the needful of policing the election thoroughly and the result of our diligent monitoring are what we will produce as evidences at the Tribunal.
“Our hope is in the judiciary and we believe that Atiku Abubakar’s mandate will be restored very soon.”
Atiku is challenging the declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari as the winner of the polls.
He insists that the results gotten from the INEC server showed that he won the polls.
