The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has decried the claims made by Presidential candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar that the server of the Independent Electoral Commission, INEC, showed that he won the presidential election by 1.6 million votes.
According to Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, National Publicity Secretary, the claim is questionable because of “ Atiku’s consistent reference to the “INEC server” as if he is the custodian of that platform. Indeed, Atiku’s constant reference to the INEC server should raise concerns as it is becoming apparent that he and the PDP are up for some dastard activities that are targeted at jeopardizing the INEC database and internal storage system.
“We recall the widespread reported cases of several programmed card readers that were retrieved from some PDP agents and their failed attempt to hack the INEC database in the lead up to the then postponed presidential election.
The party called on the INEC and the security agencies “to be on red alert to ensure that Atiku and the other desperate characters in the PDP are not able to execute their evil plans. “
