SAHARANEWS – Election has come and gone. Atiku is in court disputing the outcome. The PDP candidate is currently banking on some alleged INEC Server entries as claim to become President.
Here are some of the top 5 problems with this Atiku’s cliffhanging. With the failure of the PDP in getting President Buhari to sign the proposed electoral bill into law, Nigeria’s current Laws regarding Elections does not cover electronic transmission of results. So the only valid results acceptable by law are those collated and announced by authorized INEC returning officers.
The INEC’s card reader can only transmit accredited numbers and NOT number of votes and parties voted for. Even at that, there are still manual verification of voters where the card readers fails or malfunction.
Neither PDP, Atiku or his agents are authorized to access the figures they are parading. It is illegal and inadmissible in court. Hacking, espionage and unauthorized access to classified information is still a crime all over the world. Atiku and his hacker can still be prosecuted to the full extent of the law if the Federal Government wish to do so.
Atiku’s figures can only be accepted in court if he divulge his source, who will also testify to its validity. And the government will also arrest and trial such an individual for espionage and treason against an institution of the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The Constitution and the Electoral Laws of the Federal Government of Nigeria does not in any way recognize the figures being paraded by Atiku and his Team order than the figures officially announced by INEC – who by law are the Independent Electoral Umpire in Nigeria, no one else (not even the President can announce a winner, except INEC). Inviting programmers from Heaven can’t even help Atiku in any way. ©Netpro
