An ad hoc official of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Olufemi Ogunrinde, said he transmitted the results of the 2019 presidential election to a commission server.

Ogunrinde disclosed while he was being questioned by Muiz Banire, lawyer of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the petitionary court of the presidential election based in Abuja.

The witness informed the court that the results were transmitted through the smart card readers. “All I know is that the presiding officer brought the EC8C form and put the information in the smart card reader that I transmitted to the server,” he said.

As to whether he had seen the server, the ad hoc INEC official said no, but the office of the Commission informed him of its existence.

The presidential candidate of the Popular Democratic Party, PDP, 2019, is challenging the authenticity of the last elections in which President Muhammadu Buhari emerged as the winner.
