2019 Poll!!! More Trouble, As Attahiru Jega Breaks Silence On The Non-Existence Of INEC Server

Former Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Attahiru Jega, has denied making a statement on the existence of a server, during his time as Head of the Commission.

Jega, in a circulated comment, was quoted as saying that the INEC server existed and is ‘functional’, even in his own time.
The statement drew comments from Nigerians, who questioned the current Chairman of INEC, for the Commission’s claim that it had no server for the 2019 general elections.

Recall, that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, are challenging the declaration of President Muhammadu Buhari, of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, as the winner of the 2019 Presidential election.

The Petitioners claimed that the results they obtained from the INEC server, indicated that Atiku Abubakar won the poll, with an over six million votes margin.

The revelation drew anger from Nigerians, who lashed at the Electoral body, for denying its promise to provide a server for transmission of results of the Presidential election.

While the back and forth was ongoing, some Nigerians on the social media, reproduced a comment allegedly credited to Jega.
The Professor of politics was quoted as saying that election results were transmitted electronically ‘during his time’.

“INEC server exist and it is functional. Let us call a spade a spade. I was once INEC Chairman, and results were transmitted electronically during my time”, he was quoted as saying in one of the viral tweets.
In response however, Jega denied making such ‘reckless’ statement.

He noted that the Commission under his watch, did not at any time, transmit results electronically.
