- Festus Keyamo has asked Nigerians not to be carried away by the reported INEC video
- The lawyer said the video is a move by the opposition to create a narrative that would cover their failed attempt to cheat to the electoral system
- Keyamo said the video should not be taken seriously as it does not follow the guidelines of the INEC's Electoral Act
The director of strategic communications of President Muhammadu Buhari 2019 presidential campaign, Festus Keyamo (SAN) on Thursday, April 25, told Nigerians not to fall for the viral video where the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) reportedly said election result will be transmitted electronically.
Keyamo said the alleged video should not be taken seriously as it is a fake one by the opposition, Vanguard reports.
The senior advocate made this known through his twitter page where he said that the video is a move to create mere fantasy. He also added that the video is not supported by the Electoral Act as contained in INEC's guidelines.
Keyamo said that some corrupt individuals tried to maximise the electronic transmission of result by the commission to hack the INEC's server.
He also added that the same crooks are now the ones struggling to create another narrative to cover up the failed cheat they wanted to carry out.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that INEC reacted to the result released by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)'s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, which he claimed to have gotten from the commission's server.
In a response filed at the tribunal on Thursday, April 11, in Abuja, the electoral umpire accused Atiku of manufacturing results of the last presidential election to prove his case at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal.
