Tribunal: Buhari video evidence counters PDP, Atiku server evidence

INEC Chairman Yakubu Mahmmod, in a video tendered as evidence, has explained why the results of last general elections could not be transmitted electronically.

The PDP and its candidate Atiku Abubakar had earlier claimed, relying on a video recording by Mike Igini, INEC commissioner for Akwa Ibom, that the results of the last elections were transmitted to a purported central sever belonging to INEC.

Reno Omokri, a PDP foot soldier, has also been releasing documents claiming there was a server installed, and the name of the company that installed and later deleted it.

At the resumption of the proceedings of the presidential election tribunal on Tuesday morning, President Muhammadu Buhari’s lawyer, Alex Izinyon SAN played a video where Mahmood said his commission could not transmit results electronically, because of inadequate communication facilities/coverage in the country and the challenge of cyber security.

The lawyer also submitted a digital video disc (DVD) which contained the interview Yakubu granted to a private television station, in which he gave details of the challenges of transmitting results electronically.

The tribunal has admitted the DVD as Exhibit P85, while the certificate of compliance tendered with it, was admitted as Exhibit P86.
