INEC Was Imputing Wrong Figures On Server, BVAS Configuration – PDP Presidential Campaign
The Peoples Democratic Party Presidential Campaign Council has alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission is imputing wrong figures while transferring results to the backend server.
The PDP campaign spokesperson, Dino Melaye, stated this on Monday, while vowing that his party the PDP, would expose any wrong imputation and change in figures by the commission as it transferred election results to the backend server.
February 25 presidential election which the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu was declared winner had been a subject of debate.
The election has been described by some stakeholders as the worst election since the return of the democracy in 1999.
It had been reported that the elections were marred with irregularities such as late arrival of electoral materials, voter suppression, thuggery, manipulation of election results among others.
Above all, the electoral umpire breached its guidelines and regulations for election and provisions of Electoral Act 2022 and Nigeria constitution.
Since the February 25 elections, criticisms have continued to trail the conduct of the polls.
Following the accusations, both the Labour Party and Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidates approached the court to grant them order to inspect all the electoral materials used during the poll.
However, the Court of Appeal, granted the Labour Party’s requests for inspection of the electoral materials, but the Nigeria’s electoral umpire has refused to grant the warring parties access to those materials.
In what pundits have viewed as a subtle way of altering the information on the BVAS, INEC sought and obtained order of the Appeal Court to reconfigure the Bimodal Voters Accreditation System machines ahead of March 18 governorship and states Assembly elections.
With the skepticism, Atiku’s spokesperson took to his official Twitter handle to accuse the electoral Commission of imputing wrong figure on the database other than the original figure from the polling units.
The former lawmaker said they would shock INEC and its ICT department.
He wrote: “INEC is doing the wrong thing, wrong imputation going on. We will expose any wrong imputation and figures changing as upload and backend transfer is going on. We will shock INEC and the ICT department. Jail loading for many.”
