President Muhammadu Buhari’s legal team has responded to videos of Independent National Electoral Commission officials saying they were to transmit the results of the 2019 elections electronically.
The reaction was contained in a tweet on Thursday morning by the official spokesperson of the President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation, Festus Keyamo.
Keyamo argued that transmission of result electronically is not backed by any law.
The reaction of Keyamo followed Wednesday’s bombardment of the social media with the videos by officials of INEC saying election results were to be transmitted electronically and manually.
One of such videos was an interview granted to Channels Television.
But speaking on behalf of the legal team early on Thursday, Keyamo stated that transmission of election results electronically is not backed by the Electoral Law.
Keyamo on his Twitter handle, alleged that in anticipation of electronic transmission, some crooks concocted fictitious results and in connivance with certain INEC insiders (or by hacking) tried to upload those results into the server.
