- Mustapha Salihu notes that the decision reached by presidential election tribunal proves that INEC did not make use of a server during the 2019 elections
- The APC chieftain alleged that those who deceived the PDP presidential candidate into believing that INEC transmitted results to a server did so to collect money from him
The national vice chairman north east of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mustapha Salihu, has alleged that some persons scammed the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, into believing that INEC used a server for the transmission of election results during the 2019 presidential election.
Speaking shortly after a meeting of stakeholders of the party in Adamawa state, Salihu said it was apparent that Atiku was deceived to believe that INEC transmitted election results to a server during the presidential election, The Nation reports.
He said the decision reached by the presidential election tribunal had proved that INEC did not make use of a server during the elections.
The APC chieftain alleged that those who deceived the PDP presidential candidate into believing that INEC transmitted results to a server did so in order to collect money from him.
“Even though their lawyer did a good job trying to present their case, it was dismissed because there was no substance. This is a victory for Nigeria and the Nigerian people and not for APC alone. We have now done away with the distractions and this government is going to deliver the dividends of democracy and the next level is assured," Salihu said.
“The outcome of the tribunal was something that was expected. All the cases canvassed by the opposition are frivolous because you cannot say that an army general who serves as military commanding officer, Head of State, Minister and President of Federal Republic of Nigeria for four years does not have credentials."
Legit.ng had reported that the presidential election petition tribunal declared that there is no evidence that INEC transmitted the results of the last presidential election electronically to any server.
