The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has accused the People’s Democratic Party, PDPs Presidential candidate in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, of manufacturing results of the last election to prove his case at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal.
The electoral body filed its response at the tribunal in Abuja.
According to some reports, INEC distanced itself from an electronic sheet that purportedly contained the genuine results of the presidential election.
INEC said it does not share information with such an unclassified entity and any information purportedly derived therefrom which does not accord with the result as declared by INEC is not authentic. It added that INEC specifically denies the existence of electronic transmission of results and it is unknown to the Electoral Act 2010.
Atiku’s legal team had submitted the sheet at the tribunal last month, contending it was obtained from an internal compilation of results on INEC’s Internet server.
