APC tackles PDP over claim on INEC server

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has cautioned the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against celebrating the alleged confirmation of the existence of a central election results transmission server by an Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) official.

Relying on the video, which has gone viral, the PDP said claims by its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, of the existence and functionality of the server had been vindicated.

Atiku and the PDP are insisting that the results tendered by their lawyers at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT) are the authentic presidential poll figures.

The figures alleged to have been obtained by Alhaji Atiku from the server have become the main plank of the PDP candidate’s argument before the tribunal but the electoral umpire has since denied the existence of the server before the tribunal.

Spokesman for the Buhari presidential election campaign council Festus Keyamo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), dismissed the PDP claim as “pure entertainment”.

Cautioning the PDP against rejoicing over unsubstantiated claims on the social media, Keyamo said the tribunal would be guided in its ruling by the electoral law.
