The opposition Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) has raised alarm that the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) is replacing its servers.
“Breaking News! The @inecnigeria is currently replacing all the servers in its Hqtrs & offices in all states of the federation and Abuja, in a desperate bid to obliterate the actual Presidential election results transmitted from the polling centers across the nation,” PDP tweeted on Monday from its official handle.
The presidential candidate of the PDP in the last elections, Atiku Abubakar had alleged that he was the authentic winner of the election. Atiku and the PDP claimed that INEC servers contain records of the authentic vote counts which puts him ahead of president Buhari by over 1 million votes.
The ruling All progressives Congress(APC) had responded to PDP’s insinuations by accussing the party and its presidential candidate of hacking the INEC server.
According to PDP, the latest move by INEC is completely reprehensible and further exposes the culpability of INEC in the manipulation and rigging of the 2019 Presidential election.
“The PDP has been well briefed on how the INEC leadership and officials of the Buhari Presidency became jittery and resorted to the desperate measure, after they realized that the servers have information of Atiku’s victory at the election,” PDP alleged.
“Our party has details of how the INEC leadership & the Presidency agents procured &detailed computer experts to the commission’s offices to switch the servers, mutilate vital information in the system & attempt to erase all trails of transmitted results to the main server
“Moreover, our party has been informed about how the INEC leadership, several weeks after the election, used some compromised officials of the commission to manipulate voter registers in some states by ticking names of individuals who did not participate, ” PDP further stated
