The Peoples Democratic Party and its Presidential candidate in the February 23 has been accused by the deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Yekini Nabena of hacking into the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Nabena stated this while reacting to the statement by PDP claiming that Atiku Abubakar won the 2019 election from what is seen the commission’s server.
As earlier published by this online platform, Atiku and the PDP claimed Buhari lost the 2019 presidential polls by about 1.6m votes according to figures it obtained from the INEC website.
The APC spokesperson wondered how PDP could have gotten the figure without hacking into the site of the electoral body.
Nabena wrote on his Twitter handle: “Just tell me how Atiku and the PDP would bring out figures from INEC server without having access to it.”
“Atiku recruited RUSSIAN HACKERS for #NigeriaDecides2019. But, GOD pass them.”
Naija News had earlier reported that the PDP national legal adviser, Emmanuel Enoidem, wrote a petition to the election tribunal requesting that Atiku be declared the winner of last month’s presidential poll.
He stated in the party’s 139-page petition that, “From the data in the 1st respondent’s (INEC’s) server the true, actual and correct results from state to state computation, showed that Atiku polled a total of 18,356,732 votes to defeat Buhari whom they said scored 16,741,430 votes.”
