Alex Izinyon, counsel to President Muhammadu Buhari, has tendered a video clip of Mahmood Yakubu, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) chairman, discussing difficulty in the transmission of election results.

Izinyon tendered the clip on Tuesday at the resumed cross-examination of Segun Showunmi, star witness of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), at the presidential election petitions tribunal in Abuja.

Showunmi was a spokesman of the Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign.

While the clip was played in open court, the INEC chairman was heard saying: “Recall that we have had discussions with the NCC, telecos, we have blind, how do we transmit results in blind spots.”

Yakubu also expressed concerns about cyber security.

After the clip ended, Buhari’s counsel asked the witness if he could identify INEC chairman, he said: “He may look like him.”

Asked again if that was INEC chairman: “He could be” but Showunmi identified Channels Television logo.

After that Izinyon sought to tender the video and its certificate of compliance but Chris Uche, counsel to the petitioners, objected.

Uche argued that the respondent could not be tendering evidence while they were doing so adding that they “will have their time.”

Thereafter, the tribunal led by Mohammed Garba marked the clip as evidence.
