Festus Keyamo Rubbishes The Idea Of Electronic Transmission Of Results, Reveals How It Contradicts Electoral Act 

Renowned lawyer and President Muhammadu Buhari’s campaign spokesperson, Festus Keyamo, has maintained that the electronic transmission of results is not in the Electoral Act nor the guidelines of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar had insisted that it got more votes than the APC making reference to the “data obtained electronically from INEC’s server”.

Some party supporters have also taken to Twitter to dig up footage of INEC officials promising that results would be transmitted electronically.

“The video(s) of some INEC official(s) expressing an intention to electronically transmit results are only circulated for entertainment.

“That procedure is neither contained in the Electoral Act nor in INEC’s Guidelines. Courts are only guided by these documents and not such videos,” Keyamo said.
