– Festus Keyamo has responded to the trending issue on INEC Server
– The leading lawyer disclosed that there was no electronic transmission of results during the 2019 Presidential election
Following the issue concerning the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC server that has been trending since Thursday when the electoral commission stated that it doesn’t have a server at the Presidential Election Tribunal after the Presidential Candidate of the PDP, Alh. Atiku Abubakar sought permission to inspect the server, leading lawyer Festus Keyamo has reacted to the report.
Festus Keyamo SAN, who was the official spokesperson and Director Strategic Communications of President Buhari 2019 Presidential Campaign, in a reponse has disclosed that there was no transmission of results for two reasons, which are, the Electoral Amendment bill not being signed and service providers not being able to cover the whole country.
Festus Keyamo in his statement said, “Someone CLAIMED to have access to a server. We then petitioned the Police & DSS to investigate him BASED ON HIS CLAIM. He now turns around to say WE ARE the ones that confirmed the existence of a server, forgetting we were relying ON HIS CLAIM. Now we hear there’s even NO SERVER!
There was NO electronic transmission of results because 1. Electoral (Amendment) Bill was not signed 2. the NCC & service providers said it was impossible since the entire country was not covered by networks & that there were many blind spots in NIG from which it cannot be done.
The question that those gullible ones who believe the daft story of results in a server have not answered is simply this: since NCC & service providers said there were too many blind spots in NIG not covered by networks, how were those fake server results transmitted nationwide?”
