Contrary to claims by Peter Obi and the PDP, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it did not transmit results of the 2019 General Election electronically through its server.
INEC’s National Commissioner in charge of Southwest, Solomon Soyebi, stated this at the post-election review meeting held at the Commission’s office in Osogbo, the Osun State capital on Monday.
Soyebi said INEC they did not adopt the technology option because they dwere sure it would not be successful.
He further explained that although the process was piloted in Sokoto and tested in the Osun Governorship Election, it was not used for the General Elections.
On Monday, Atiku Abubakar’s running mate in the February 23rd presidential election Peter Obi had said the Peoples Democratic Party will compel the Independent National Electoral Commission to produce the results of the 2019 polls from its server at the Election Petitions Tribunal.
He insisted his party won the election, and that the proof was in INEC’s servers.
Obi also expressed optimism that the PDP would emerge victorious at the tribunal, which has been adjourned to June 24th.
