The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it does not have a server where results of the presidential election were uploaded.

The electoral commission was reacting to the request of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The PDP and Atiku had asked the tribunal to compel INEC to allow them inspect smart card readers and the server.

The opposition party and its candidate are challenging the declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari as winner of the presidential election that held in February.

At the tribunal on Thursday, Yunus Usman, counsel to INEC, said the party was asking something they did not have.

“They are asking us to bring something we do not have,” the lawyer said.

Usman asked the tribunal to strike out the application.

Also, counsels of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Buhari asked the tribunal to strike out the application of the PDP.

They argued that they could not prove the existence of a server.

The electoral commission said Buhari polled 15,191,847 votes to defeat the former vice-president who secured 11, 262,978.

But Atiku in his application claimed that he polled 18,356,732 votes while Buhari secured 16,741,430, citing INEC’s server.

    What happens if it was proved at the end of the day by all forensic evidences that they have a server. Evidences from even the engineers that install the server for them with proofs of engagement and payments?

    “At the tribunal on Thursday, Yunus Usman, counsel to INEC, said the party was asking something they did not have”.The Cable.
    Meaning INEC conducted an election in the 21st. century with no materials and no documentation after recieving Billions of Public funds.
    In other words they simply allocated figures at will to the candidates to declare a winner.
    That alone should declare the said election Null and Void.
    Thanks
