10 REASONS WHY ATIKU IS NOT COMING

A point by point rebuttal to the above subject matter

—Abstract (executive summary)
—Definition of terms
—A rebuttal to the subject matter (why Atiku is not coming)
—Conclusion

Abstract (executive summary)
Two years ago, INEC announced their plan to deploy electronic transmission & collation of polling unit results to enhance the credibility of the 2019 election. The technology was consequently used and the outcome revealed that Buhari lost.

Ironically, Inec tried in vain to dump the result but it was too late, a brave anonymous staff of inec downloaded the result and forwarded it to Atiku for a looming post-election litigation.

The possibility that Atiku will win is very high given the avalanche of evidence he has to proof his appeal.

Definition of terms
—Soft copy of the presidential result
The aggregated result of all the polling units across Nigeria sent via a smart card reader (SCR) to a backend belonging to inec for automated processing.

—Backend
Backend is a computer system which consists of a server, a database and an application.

—Front end
Frontend is that part of a computer system or application with which enables user-friendly interaction with a computer system.

—Digital evidence
Digital evidence is defined as information and data of value to an investigation that is stored on, received or transmitted by an electronic device

—Whistle blower
A whistle blower is a person, who could be an employee of a company, or a government agency, disclosing information to the public or some higher authority about any wrongdoing, which could be in the form of fraud, corruption, etc.

A point by point rebuttal to the subject matter (why Atiku is not coming)

1. Atiku’s Server Argument is a SCAM
Note that Atiku is not in court to argue about the meaning of a server but he is in court to proof that he won majority votes that were cast in the just concluded 2019 election. To prove his point, Atiku has presented digital evidences to the tribunal which comprises of the following:

A. Soft copy of the presidential result obtained from the backend server of INEC.
B. Total number of accredited voters via the smart card reader (SCR).

The above evidences were obtained from a whistle blower who is a staff member of inec but wishes to remain anonymous. The soft copy result of the presidential election serves as a powerful evidence which shows that Atiku got 18.35 million votes while Buhari and the other contestants got 16.7 million votes and 1.3 million votes (others) respectively but excluding Rivers State data.

Note that digital evidences are very difficult to falsify or destroy because it will leave a trail / footprint unlike paper evidence which could be altered / falsified.

The total number of accredited voters is another strong evidence Atiku has presented in his petition to reinforce his appeal that he won the election. INEC said only 29.3 million Nigerians did accreditation but data obtained from the backend server belonging to INEC shows that more that 37.6 million people did accreditation.

This means that over 8 million votes were depleted and this further gives credence to Atiku’s appeal that his votes were reduced from 18.35 million to 11.26 million (-7.09 million). Also note that Buahari’s votes were reduced from 16.7 million to 15.19 million (-1.51 million). This was deliberately by APC & INEC just to confuse investigation.

2. it does not matter whether INEC has a Server since the law does not recognize it
From a direct point of view, the electoral law does not recognise the server & the smart card reader but from an indirect point of view, the law does not prohibit INEC from modernising, upgrading, automating and determining how to conduct the election (Section 52(2) of the electoral act 2010). However, what is most important regarding the Atiku’s petition is that he has evidence to show that he won. It is only mischief makers that are twisting the narrative.

3. The Law recognises Form EC8A, signed by agents, collation officers.
Yes and nobody is contesting that fact.

4. Due to network connectivity issues, INEC could not have transmitted results
This is not true. Virtually every part of Nigeria has been covered by GSM infrastructure. Secondly, it was INEC that instructed their officials to transmit polling unit result to the backend server.


5. No lawyer, arguing an election petition case will make an argument based on Servers

Atiku’s petition is built on 5 pillars:
—That buhari did not score majority of the vote cast.
—That buhari’s election is invalid by reason of corruption, before & during the election.
—That buhari does not possess the required minimum qualification.
—That Buhari lied under oath about his credentials thus committing as offence know as perjury.
—That the 2019 election did not fully comply with the 2010 electoral act.

Like I said earlier, Atiku is not in court to base his argument about the meaning of a server but he is in court to proof that he won majority of votes cast in the just concluded 2019 election. The most potent evidence remains the information in the backend server belong to INEC.

6. No party agent authenticated any results on a Server post-voting and the counting of votes
Blame INEC for not allowing collation agents of the various political parties to view details of the election results, transmitted from the polling units to the backend server of INEC.

The original plan was to allow political party agents have viewing access to the frontend of INEC computer application at the various state collation centres but after Buhari lost, INEC did a detour by dumping the earlier plan. Their servers were deliberately short-down, thus preventing collation agents of political parties from viewing, authenticating and re-confirming the soft copy result with the hard copy result.

7. Illegal & unauthorised access to a Server is a crime under the Cybercrime Act?
In the context of the 2019 election, nobody (PDP & Atiku) had committed any Cyber-crime. It was a whistle blower who blew the whistle and gave Atiku the required evidence. Again, it is the inec chairman who has committed a crime by conveying false election information to all Nigerians.

8. The server result presented by Atiku is extremely ridiculous.
Statistical research methods such as correlation analysis will show you that the results obtained from inec backend server is more statistically logical than the one which was announced by Professor Yakubu Mahood. How can peaceful regions like the s/west, s/east and the s/south have a low turnout ratio than the n/east?

The turnout ratio in the n/east was about 44% while the INEC result gave the s/west, s/east & s/south an average turnout ratio of 29%. Borno State for example has more voters that Anambra.

9. Atiku’s 400 witnesses are far too few to prove or disprove anything
It is not the quantity of witnesses but the quality that matters. Kindly note that 4 international observer group from America and EU had already said the election was badly conducted.

With just 200 witnesses + video evidences + international observer statements and publications + newspaper publications + statistical evidences among others, I am optimistic that Atiku and his team of lawyers will proof that Atiku is the true winner.

10. The Borno election results
The Borno election result need to be further investigated. So far, about 3,500 exhibits have been submitted at the tribunal regarding that state. This goes to show how bad the 2019 election was.

To me, I will classify Borno, Yobe, Kano & Zamfara as the Head Quarters of Election corruption Centres in Nigeria. Zamfara and Kano states both have 11,000 exhibits against them at the tribunal pertaining to electoral malpractices.

Conclusion
The inability of inec to justify Buhari’s victory so far gives credence to Atiku’s appeal that he is the true winner. The server evidence remains a nemesis to APC / INEC / Buhari.

Every right thinking person with good education knows that the result which inec announced on 27 Feb are not genuine.

I am very confident that the judiciary will give justice to the true winner.
