The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is replacing all the servers in its national headquarters in Abuja and offices in all the states of the federation, aimed at deleting the actual presidential election results transmitted from the polling centres across the country.
PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, said this on Monday in a statement in Abuja.
Mr. ologbondiyan said INEC’s action exposed the culpability of INEC in the rigging of the 2019 presidential election.
“The PDP has been well briefed on how the INEC leadership and officials of the Buhari Presidency became jittery and resorted to the desperate measure, after they realised that the servers have information of 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 was with the view to using such to cover the fictitious results it wrote for the APC,” he said.
The PDP spokesman said what INEC and the Buhari Presidency did not understand was that computer software and applications left traces, signatures as well as footmark.
He claimed that a forensic investigation of the system would reveal the real votes transmitted from the polling centres, which he claimed, showed the PDP’s presidential candidate as the winner of the election.
However, INEC’s Director of Publicity and Voter Education, Mr Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi has denied the allegations, saying that since the matter was in court, the PDP knew what to do if it felt its claims were true.
