INEC Server: Microsoft, IBM, Oracle to testify for Atiku

Must Read

The presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has resolved to involve Microsoft, IBM and Oracle experts in his battle for the number one seat in Nigeria.
He claims that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) stored election results in a server saying he defeated President Buhari by 1.6 million votes and the experts will prove his case at the Tribunal.
Atiku, in a fresh response to INEC’s reply to his petition,  gave the server name as INEC_PRES_RSLT_SRV2019 and its unique Mac address as 94-57-A5-DC-64-B9 with Microsoft Product ID 00252-70000-0000-AA535.
According to Punch, Atiku and PDP will also be expected to tender INEC’s training manual on elections, a printout of the votes of candidates from smart card readers and a printout of the forensic audit report on INEC’s server as evidence.
Atiku claimed he polled a total of 18,356,732 votes to defeat President Buhari and the All Progressives Congress who he said scored 16,741,430 votes.

However, INEC’s Director, Information and Communications Technology, Mr Chidi Nwafor, in his witness statement on oath attached to the reply, specifically denied the “server results” which the PDP and Atiku claimed.
Nwafor said all the results were collated manually and were never transmitted electronically.
Atiku, in his fresh response, said the figures he claimed to have scored were genuine.
The reply read in part, “The servers from which the said figures were derived belong to the 1st respondent (INEC).
“The figures and votes were transmitted to the 1st respondent’s Presidential result’s server 1 and thereafter aggregated in INEC_PRES_RSLT_SRV2019 whose physical address or unique Mac address as 94-57-A5-DC-64-B9 with Microsoft Product ID 00252-70000-0000-AA535.
“The descriptions are unique to the 1st respondent’s server.”
