According to the result which he said he gathered from the Independent National and Electoral Commission (INEC) server, the result showed that he polled a total of 18,356,732 votes while President Buhari polled 16,741,430 votes.
Reacting to the evidence, INEC said the result was fabricated by Atiku and the PDP and not does not originate from its website.
In his defence, Atiku presented a copy of the result which was obtained by him, The Cable, and the PDP which also has revealed that the address of the server from which the results were obtained are unique to INEC.
The former vice president also gave the “unique MAC address and Microsoft product ID of the INEC server,” from where the results were obtained.
They said: “The servers from which the said figures were derived belong to the first respondent (INEC). The figures and votes were transmitted to the first respondent’s Presidential Result’s Server 1 and thereafter aggregated in INEC_PRES_RSLT_SRV2019, whose Physical Address or unique Mac Address is 94-57-A5-DC-64-B9 with Microsoft Product ID 00252-7000000000-AA535. The above descriptions are unique to the 1st respondent’s server.
“There is no conjecture in the votes and scores in the table pleaded by the petitioners. The figures are factual. Spokesperson for the 2nd respondent’s Campaign Organisation openly admitted that the data in question was in the first respondent’s server when he wrote and submitted a petition to the Inspector General of Police and Director General of Department of State Services, DSS, asking the security agencies to investigate the 2nd petitioner herein for allegedly hacking into the server of the 1st respondent and obtaining the data in question.
“Specifically, Mr. Festus Keyamo, SAN, the spokesperson of the 2nd respondent, claimed in the said petition that it was the first petitioner who smuggled the data into the server.”
The former vice president, and PDP also claimed that the INEC chairman “committed grave errors in the final collation exercise” for the election by “falsely crediting” some persons with political parties, including “Okotie Christopher, Reverend Dr. Onwubuya and Ojinika Jeff Chinze.
“The grave errors referred to in paragraphs 4 and 5 above were under the hands and signature of the first respondent’s chairman (who was also the Returning Officer) in the conduct of the final collation of the results of the presidential election.
“The petitioners state that the final results as declared by the first respondent are those that were transmitted online to the website of the first respondent (www inecnigeria.org).”
