The Presidential Election Petition Tribunal (PEPC) said there is no evidence that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) transmitted the results of February 23 presidential election electronically to any server.
The court held that Abubakar and PDP failed to prove the existence of an INEC server or that the electoral commission transmitted results electronically, The Nation reports.
The Presiding Justice, Justice Mohammed Garba said. “I have carefully examined and examined Exhibit 28 (INEC Manual for Election) tendered by the petitioners, I did not see where there is provision for electronic transmission of result of election”.
The court also held that there is no law in Nigeria backing electronic transmission of results or the transmission of result using card reader.
