General Elections: APC Faults PDPs Claim Of ‘1.6m Votes’
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has faulted claims by the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar of winning the elections by a margin of 1.6 million votes.
The APC in a signed statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu discredited the claim that the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) indicated Atiku had ‘won’ the Presidential Election.
“Of all the prayers of Atiku before the Election Tribunal, which is at best hollow, the most ridiculous is his claim that the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) indicated he ‘won’ the Presidential Election by 1.6million votes.”
“A few questions would suffice: Is this phantom figure of 1.6million votes Dubai-invented? Was the result sold to Atiku by his numerous marabouts, who we understand, had assured him that the last election was a done deal for him?”
“Indeed, Atiku’s constant reference to the INEC server should raise concerns as it is becoming apparent that he and the PDP are up for some dastard activities that are targeted at jeopardizing the INEC database and internal storage system”, he added.
