The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has accused PDP’s presidential candidate in the 2019 election, Atiku Abubakar, of manufacturing results of the last presidential election to prove his case at the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal (PEPT)
INEC responded to Atiku’s petition at PEPT in Abuja. The commission distance itself from an electronic sheet that alledgedly contained the genuine results of the presidential election.
Mr Abubakar’s legal team submitted the sheet at the tribunal last month, stating that it was obtained from an internal compilation of results on INEC’s Internet server.
Atiku’s lawyers claimed that Atiku Abubakar won by more than six million votes, but his victory was allegedly suppressed by the commission in favour of incumbent President Muhammadu Buhari.
Atiku’s purported victory based on the results submitted to the tribunal by his legal team irked the supporters of the ruling All Progressives Congress after the claim became public.
Mr Buhari’s campaign also wrote to the police and the State Security Service to launch a criminal investigation against Atiku. It accused him of illegally accessing INEC’s files
