Ekiti Tribunal: INEC Witnesses Disagree With Fayemi, APC Lawyers Over Altered Re by 1Ebiscoo: 6:07pm On Nov 09
The Independent National Electoral Commission’s witnesses on Friday disagreed with the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Governor Kayode Fayemi’s lawyers at the ongoing sitting of the Ekiti State governorship election petitions ttribunal in Abuja.

The witnesses disagreed with APC and Fayemi’s counsel on the powers of INEC officials to alter results of election already entered into Form EC8A, noting that collation officers cannot alter results except at the polling units and with the consent of all party agents.

Petitioners are contending at the tribunal that the content of the duplicate copies of INEC Form EC8A in which results were recorded at the Polling Units was different from the results used to declare Fayemi as winner and that most of the results were altered.

APC and Fayemi’s lawyers had in an attempt to show that the manual used by INEC during the election contained some clauses that can allow for discretion to be exercised in order to alter results, stressed that the schedule and manual at page 75 were all-encompassing.

INEC officials had earlier claimed that they made honest mistakes by grossly mutilating the results.

However, INEC officials (Collation officers) who gave evidence at the tribunal today (Thursday 8/11/2018) said during cross-examination that Collation Officers cannot alter Form EC8A (polling unit results).

The witnesses said only officers posted to the units can exercise such discretion and it must be at the polling unit with the knowledge of respective political parties.

The tribunal adjourned till Tuesday 13/11/2018 at the instance of INEC.

And yet INEC allowed distorted Ayedaade LGA results in Osun to stand..

Ladies and gentlemen.... Senator Adeleke will claim his due mandate....

This is the problem in NL. Somebody has just said his opinion and you are telling him to shut up. If you have any superior argument why not put forward and let's hear you rather than this childish and uncivilized manner. It is not until you insult others that you will be seen to be working or supporting your party.

Anyway, you can buy superglue to gum his mouth.

Once the court rules that INEC has no power to alter results outside the pulling unit then it will have an effect on Osun election.
APC alliance with INEC will soon fail them. I see this case going all the way to supreme court.
