Presidential Poll: INEC Credited Invalid Votes To Buhari, Atiku Tells Tribunal by singa4real: 9:33pm On Mar 19
In Summary for people that dont have the time to long write up : Atiku accused INEC of transferring invalid vote to Buhari, And has show an statistical fact to prove that, which you can fine on https://www.factsdontlieng.com.

In Details : ABUJA – The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, has alleged that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had at various stages of the February 23 presidential election, unlawful allocated votes to President Muhammadu Buhari

Atiku who made the allegation in the petition he lodged before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Abuja, said he would adduce oral and documentary evidence to show that results of the election as announced by INEC, especially the votes credited to President Buhari, did not represent the lawful valid votes cast.

He alleged that in some states, INEC, deducted lawful votes that accrued to him, in its bid to ensure that Buhari was returned back to office. Both Atiku and the PDP said they would call evidence of statisticians, forensic examiners and finger-print experts at the hearing of the petition to establish that the scores credited to Buhari were not the product of actual votes validly cast at the polling units. “The Petitioners plead and shall rely on electronic video recordings, newspaper reports, photographs and photographic images of several infractions of the electoral process by the Respondents”, they added. Specifically, the petitioners serialised results that were recorded from each state of the federation in order to prove that the alleged fraudulent allocation of votes to Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC, took place at the polling units, the ward collating centres, local government collating centres and the State collating centres. Atiku contended that proper collation and summation of the presidential election results would show that contrary to what INEC declared, he garnered a total of 18,356,732 votes, ahead of Buhari who he said got a total of 16,741,430 votes. “The Petitioners shall rely on the evidence of Statisticians, Forensic Examiners and other Experts, detailing the data analysis on the votes at all levels of collation, from the polling units to the final return”, he added. “The Petitioners state that Smart Card Readers deployed by the 1st Respondent, in addition to accreditation, equally transmitted electronically the results of voting from polling units directly to the server of the 1st Respondent. The Presiding Officers of the 1st Respondent directly inputted the results from the polling units at the end of voting and transmitted directly to the server, in addition to manually taking the Form EC8As to the Wards for collation. The 1st Respondent is hereby given notice to produce the records of results from each polling unit uploaded and transmitted electronically by officials of the 1st Respondent through smart card readers to the 1st Respondent’s Servers.

The Petitioners plead and rely on the 1st Respondent’s Manual Technologies 2019, and notice is hereby given to the 1st Respondent to produce same at the trial. The 1st Respondent’s agents at the polling units used the Smart Card Reader for electronic collation and transmission of results. The Petitioners plead and shall rely on and play at the trial, the video demonstration by the 1st Respondent of the deployment of Smart Card Reader for authentication of accreditation and for transmission of data. “The Petitioners hereby plead and rely upon the extract of data as contained on the 1st Respondent’s servers as at 25th February 2019, notice to produce whereof is hereby given to the 1st Respondent. The Petitioners also will rely on the data on the 1st Respondent’s central server between 25th February 2019 and 8th March 2019 and hereby also give notice to produce same before this Honourable Court. “The Petitioners hereby plead the electronic data on the servers of the 1st Respondent and shall at the trial give evidence of the source of the data analysis and data material, including the website: www.factsdontlieng.com. “The 1st Respondent had on the day of election published the total number of registered voters in the entire Country as 84,004,084. Subsequently, the same 1st Respondent published a different figure of 82,344,107 as registered voters, leading to an unexplained difference of 1,659,977 registered voters. The 1st Respondent equally published the number of permanent voter’s cards (PVC) collected for the purpose of the presidential election as 72,775,502. “The Petitioners state that whereas the actual number of voters accredited at the election was 35,098,162, the 1st Respondent wrongly suppressed and/or reduced the number of accredited voters to 29,394,209 to the detriment of the Petitioners. “The 1st Respondent had by its Regulations and Guidelines for the Conduct of Elections, 2019 made pursuant to the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended) provided for the mandatory use of card readers for the said election. The 1st Respondent by its press release on smart card readers issued in February 2019 and signed by its National Commissioner, Barrister Festus Okoye, emphasised and reiterated that “The use of the Smart Card Reader is NOT ONLY MANDATORY but its deliberate non-use attracts the sanction of possible prosecution of erring officials in accordance with the INEC Regulations and Guidelines for the conduct of elections. “This is in addition to the voiding of any result emanating from such units or areas as was done in the Presidential and National Assembly elections of February 23, 2019.” By this stated position of the 1st Respondent, all accreditation not done by smart card reader in the presidential election was and remain void. “The Petitioners state and contend that the 2nd Respondent was not duly elected by majority of lawful votes cast at the election; and that from the data on each State of the Federation and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, in the 1st Respondent’s server, the 1st Petitioner, as opposed to the 2nd Respondent, scored majority of lawful votes cast at the election. “Wherefore, the Petitioners pray jointly and severally against the Respondents as follows:- “That it may be determined that the 2nd Respondent (Buhari) was not duly elected by a majority of lawful votes cast in the said election and therefore the declaration and return of the 2nd Respondent by the 1st Respondent as the President of Nigeria is unlawful, undue, null, void and of no effect. “That it may be determined that the 1st Petitioner (Atiku) was duly and validly elected and ought to be returned as President of Nigeria, having polled the highest number of lawful votes cast at the election to the office of the President of Nigeria held on 23rd February 2019 and having satisfied the constitutional requirements for the said election.

An order directing the 1st Respondent to issue Certificate of Return to the 1st Petitioner as the duly elected President of Nigeria. “That it may be determined that the 2nd Respondent was at the time of the election not qualified to contest the said election. “That it may be determined that the 2nd Respondent submitted to the Commission affidavit containing false information of a fundamental nature in aid of his qualification for the said election”. In the alternative, he prayed: “That the election to the office of the President of Nigeria held on 23rd February 2019 be nullified and a fresh election ordered”

It is not your resources so let them seek justice which is the appropriate thing to do and it will deepen ovr democracy.

And to the matter at hand, should we then assume the main reason INEC haven't responded to PDP request for inspection of election materials is because they are buying time in order to tamper with collated results and reprogramming of card readers?


Coupled with pressures on Atiku from FG govt apologists not to challenge the result in court and most especially Sultan of Sokoto saying he'll win the case but there may be violent crisis afterwards then the allegation may not be far from the truth.

it's a pity laying claim to sultans utterances. this are leaders that are known for who they are.
does atiku pdp need Inec materials to pursue it case at the tribunal or any court of jurisprudence? it's a capital, NO.
even before the election comes to an end, before Inec final collation and announcement the winner already knows while the looser likewise does.
all political parties contesting have their field agent filing reports to their head office. all agents signed result sheets at polling units, ward level, local government collation offices even at state office before finally getting to the national collation centre. tell me they don't have a concrete evidence enough to challenge Inec and FG!?
it is normal, it is their right but we all know the truth and how it works but for our self interest we end up supporting courses that are wrong.
to answer your first question........ YES it is MY RESOURCE that is about to be wasted and squandered.

APC will eventually shot itself in the foot by their desperation for Rivers, Bauchi and Kano. INEC knew what they did during the presidential election.
They caught the elections observers and a section of the international community unaware with the infractions during the presidential election.

The international observers having discovered that they were hoodwinked by INEC during the presidential elections beamed their search light on INEC and the security operatives during the governorship election.

That is why INEC is desperate to at least show some level of impartiality in Bauchi, Rivers and Kano.

Tinubu and some desperate politicians will mislead the president into making mockery and truncating our democracy. If the president is wise, he should allow INEC to do their damage control.

So PDP do not need election materials to prove their case in court? And if you were to be a judge results sheets from party agents are enough for you to pronounce judgement without cross examining with other materials in custody of INEC to prove their case?

Haba kindly go through what you wrote again. Does it even make sense to you?

The strategy is to always give M0r0ns what to hope for at every point in time.

Which statistician counted vote and recorded PDP to be 2 million ahead grin

If they had facts they won't add Buhari's certificate to the line up.

I am sure Atiku don move on but his supporters need to assume he is still fighting.

If u had plans to leave Nigeria once Buhari's wins u better buy ur ticket

hey! which one come be haba now!? I've done anything wrong?
I knew what I typed. he (atiku) and pdp are not laying claim of discrepancy in results announced by Inec the they pdp collate. this is not ruling out anomalies, misconduct and voting irregularities in this case who ever is worse hit would sure leave the blame at the other doorstep.
pdp has, owns and reserve the right to the back end materials even more sensitive materials if need be but we practicing mediocre in this part of the world. one thing I believe is atiku knows the truth and where this whole drama is heading.
all I can sense here is they forming the hard way just to it look like they gave a good but it didn't just swing in their favour this time.
