We didn’t transmit results electronically – INEC Chair

The Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Mahmoud Yakubu has denied claims that the results of the last general elections were transmitted electronically.

PDP Presidential candidate in the February 23rd election, Atiku Abubakar who is challenging the outcome of the  election before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPT), claimed to have won the election by virtue of some results they got from a certain server where INEC inputed the results.

At the resumed hearing at the Tribunal this morning, lawyer to President Buhari, Alex Izinyon (SAN), played a video where INEC Chairman said his commission could not transmit results electronically because of inadequate communication facilities/coverage in the country and the challenge of cyber security.

Izinyon further tendered a digital video disc (DVD) which contained the interviewthe INEC boss granted to a private television station, in which he gave details of the challenges of transmitting results electronically.

The DVD was admitted as Exhibit: P85, while the certificate of compliance, tendered with it, was admitted as Exhbit: P86.
