Nigeria's electoral body, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has broken its silence after presidential candidates petitioned the tribunal seeking the nullification of the declaration of  Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the winner of the February 25 presidential election. Recall that Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), in separate petitions, asked the Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja to void Tinubu’s emergence as President-elect.
 
In his petition marked CA/PEPC/05/2023, Atiku said the declaration of Tinubu as the winner of the presidential election was invalid by reason of non-compliance with the provisions of the Electoral Act, 2022. He further argued that Tinubu’s election was invalid by reason of corrupt practices and called for the withdrawal of the Certificate of Return that was issued to Tinubu by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
 
While in his petition marked CA/PEPC/03/2023, Obi  maintained that Tinubu was not duly elected by a majority of the lawful votes cast at the time of the election, alleging that there was rigging in 11 states. He also urged the tribunal to determine that, at the time of the presidential election, Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima, were not qualified to contest the election.
 
In a chat with The Punch on Tuesday, the Chief Press Secretary to the INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi, said the commission does not comment on cases filed by political parties and their candidates.

I see a lot of uninformed comments here. Atiku has presented his petition in a way that all ICT experts in the world would expect. Remember that I once said on this platform that technology cannot be manipulated so as to erase the truth due to the time stamps except you completely destroy the technology itself. With that said, going through Atiku's petition, he has clearly shown how possible it is for the results to be switched and with massive evidence too. The burden of proof is now with INEC. Please read vanguard.ng to enlighten yourselves on his technical submissions explaining step by step how this was done. All other things may not even matter in this case except the evidence that cannot be denied or erased in technology. This is indeed the game changer. If you use technology to commit fraud, then you have already left an indelible mark behind due to the time stamps

..YOUR SUBMISSION WORTH READING BUT SPARE ME ALL THAT. AS FAR AS NIGERIA, IT LEADERS, SYSTEMS ARE CONCERNED, ATIKU,S PETITION IS AS GOOD AS DEAD ON ARRIVAL. IT IS THE SAME TECHNOLOGY THEY USED IN FALSIFYING THE RESULTS AND ERASED IT, THAT WILL ALSO BE USED TO DECLARE THEIR COMPLAINTS NULL AND VOID INCLUDING PETER OBI WHO DID NOT EVEN COME SECOND. OBI IS CLAIMING VICTORY. ATIKU IS CLAIMING VICTORY. IF ATIKU IS EVENTUALLY DECLARED THE ACTUAL WINNER, IT MEANS THAT OBI LIED. IF OBI IS DECLARED THE WINNER, IT MEANS ATIKU LIED. IT IS BETTER IN MY OWN OPINION THEY RESERVE THEIR ENERGY FOR THE NEXT PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. NIGERIA IS A MAFIA COUNTRY WITH TRAILER LOAD OF GOD FATHERS. ONCE YOU DO NOT BELONG, YOU GO NOWHERE NO MATTER HOW GOOD IS YOUR PARTY MANIFESTO OR PLANS FOR THE PEOPLE. THEY, THE MAFIAS, DECIDE.  AWOLOWO, IDIAGBON, MURTALA MUHAMMAD, MKO, OJUKWU, SHONEKAN WERE EITHER BLOCKED OR GOVERNMENT CUT SHORT BECAUSE THEY NEVER BELONG TO GANG.
