Buhari vs Atiku: INEC reacts to PDP’s claim on replacement of election result servers


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reacted to the allegation by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that it was replacing election servers in its headquarters and state offices across the federation.

The party had, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, claimed that the replacement was part of plot by the electoral umpire to obliterate the actual presidential election results transmitted from the polling centres across the nation.

But in a swift reaction, the electoral commission described the allegation as baseless and untrue.

Rotimi Oyekanmi, the Chief Press Secretary to Prof. Yakubu Mahmood, the INEC Chairman, in a terse statement yesterday, said the commission would not trade words with the party on the matter since it was already before the court.

He said: “The allegation is baseless and uncalled for. The [commission] has maintained that it will not join issues with the PDP in the media on a petition that the party had already filed in court, in respect of the 2019 presidential election.

“Rather than issuing press statements and addressing press conferences on the same petition on a daily basis, the PDP should allow the legal process to run its full course.”
