INEC official said he transmitted presidential election results to server



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

Ogunrinde made the revelation while being interrogated by Muiz Banire, lawyer of the Congress of All Progressives, APC, in the presidential election petition tribunal based in Abuja.

The witness informed the court that the results were transmitted via smart card readers.

“All I know is that the presiding officer brought the form EC8C and I put in the information on the smart card reader which I transmitted to the server,” he said.
