INEC SERVER: 60 presidential candidates tackle PDP, Atiku.
The 2019 presidential candidates have berated the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, over the ongoing controversy surrounding server usage, noting that it is unnecessary.
The party, in a joint forum of 60 presidential candidates, in a media briefing on Tuesday said the Independent National Electoral Commission has done well kicking against Atiku’s claim on server result issue.
The National Chairman, Alhaji Mohammed Shittu, while addressing the media slammed the report of European Union Observer, who had earlier alleged a lack of transparency in the guidelines of the 2019 general elections.
“We reiterate that the INEC server controversy is unnecessary.
“It is a plot to discredit the election as political parties never agreed with INEC in any of the several pre-election meetings that results will be transmitted electronically.
“Parties agreed on a lot of issues with the commission and those were implemented.
“It is worrisome that only one political party out of 91 is saying a different thing on the presidential election while at the same time praising its performance on the other elections, especially governorship, conducted by the same INEC.
“Going forward, we would like to urge President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately sign the Electoral Act Amendment into law once it is presented to him again by the National Assembly. That amendment will hugely improve our electoral system and its processes,” Shittu said.
