An agent of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) during the 2019 presidential election, Yahaya Shiko, has alleged that the results of the elections were doctored in Kaduna to favour President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Cable reports that Shiko served as the collation agent for PDP in Kaduna south local government area of Kaduna state.
Legit.ng gathers that the agent, at the tribunal on Thursday, July 11, said the results were doctored in his presence.
The presidential candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, and his party are challenging the victory of Buhari in the February 23, 2019 presidential election.
Shiko, who served as the 20th petitioners’ witness, said: “My statement was based on the reports I received from the polling unit agents and what I saw on the result sheets which were forwarded to the local government collation centre.
“There were cases of overvoting, and allocation of figures. These were what were carried to the Local Government collation centre. In my presence, the results were doctored.”
While responding to questions from the counsel of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Yunus Usman, the collation agent said: “Figures were wrongly credited to the APC.
“At the collation centre, I made complaints when the results were announced and I protested by refusing to append my signature to the result sheets."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that one Peter Uzioma Obi who is the second witness of Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) said that he and some others were trained by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to transmit election result.
Atiku had rejected the outcome of the 2019 presidential election which was won by Muhammadu Buhari.
Obi who was called as a witness at the election tribunal said INEC provided them with codes which they used to transmit result to the server.
