Sixty presidential candidates in the 2019 election have declared their support for Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, over the latter’s stance that it had no server to record results of the election.
The candidates at a joint press conference in Abuja, yesterday, insisted that the commission’s position was not wrong, given that there was no provision in the law that mandated it to have server for the election.
To this end, they berated the opposition Peoples Democractic Party, PDP, and its candidate in the election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, for insisting on access to the server, saying the demand was uncalled for, given that all political parties and their candidates in the poll were notified by the commission, prior to the election, that it would not adopt full election voting in the 2019 general election.
Speaking under the aegis of Joint Forum of 60 Presidential Candidates, the candidates said the insistence of PDP and Atiku to inspect the server was “a plot to discredit the election as political parties never agreed with INEC in any of the several pre-election meetings that results will be transmitted electronically.”
