The Supreme Court has held that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the last presidential election, Atiku Abubakar failed to prove their claim that INEC had a server and that it transmitted election results electronically.
The court, while giving reasons for dismissing the appeal by the PDP and Atiku, held that they were wrong to have relied on results to get from a website: www.factsdontlieng.co., whose owner they could not establish, to claim to have won the election.
“I agree entirely with the court below that the appellants failed to prove that INEC has the server from which they got their figures.
“As a result, all the results, calculations, and analysis based on the results claimed are of no moment,” Justice Inyang Okoro said.
The court resolved issue 3 against the appellant.
