Wrong calculation of electoral result in 11 states caused my annihilation – Atiku
The Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential up-and-comer in the 2019 race, Atiku Abubakar, have documented their last composed locations wherein they clarified how they were supposedly looted of triumph in the February 23, 2019 presidential decision through improper calculation in 11 states.
The states, as indicated by them, are Bauchi, Borno, Gombe, Jigawa, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Kebbi, Niger, Yobe, and Zamfara. The candidates expressed through their attorney, Dr. Livy Uzoukwu (SAN), that a right calculation of the outcomes would give them an edge of lead of 222,332 votes over President Buhari and his All Progressives Congress. They expressed this in their reaction to Buhari’s last location, fighting that the right calculation demonstrated that they scored 9,426,082 votes against Buhari’s 9,203,750. They guaranteed that reports offered by an analyst, who was called as one of their observers bringing up shortcomings in the outcome proclaimed by the Independent National Electoral Commission, was not tested by the respondents to their appeal.
The candidates stated, “These reports (P90-K) are unchallenged and remained so as none of the respondents opposed the itemized investigation of unlawful votes extricated from Exhibits PNG1 – PNG3464, PYB1731, PKT1 PKT3377; PKB1 – PKB2105; PB01 – PB03471; PJG1 – PJG 3161; PGB1 – PGB 1911; PBC1 – PBC3598; PKD1 – PKD3334; PKN1 – PKN7159 and PZF1 – PZF 1000 as abridged hereunder.”
The solicitors likewise fought that there were “surveying units where Forms EC8A were adjusted or altered to reflect new votes/scores.” They included that Forms EC8B (ward result sheets), the comparative blunders were additionally watched, including that there were errors in the ordered figures on Forms EC8A and the Forms EC8B.
They expressed, “It is presented that when the votes credited to the gatherings by virtue of different mistakes recorded in passage 4.54(a) – (f) and (a) – (d), separately, above are deducted from the outcomes announced in the 11 central expresses, the under recorded figures currently speak to the general legitimate votes cast in the presidential decision hung on February 23, 2019 crosswise over Nigeria:
“Decision result: PDP – 11, 262,978; APC – 15,191,847. Void votes: PDP – 1,836,896; APC – 5,988,097. New outcome: PDP – 9,426,082; APC – 9,203,750.”
Atiku and his gathering had by their appeal encouraged the five-man council driven by Justice Mohammed Garba to pronounce them the victor of the February 23, 2019 survey or invalidate Buhari’s decision. In their last location documented in light of Buhari’s, the applicants raised five issues for assurance, including that Buhari was neither appropriately chosen by most of legitimate votes nor qualified to challenge as of the season of the decision.
The respondents had before, through their legal advisors, documented their separate last locations. The council had fixed August 21 for appropriation of the last locations by the gatherings.
