It Was An Unknown INEC Official, That Released Our Server Results —atiku

Petitioners’ Witness 59, David Njoga, called by the petitioners as an expert witness, told the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal on Friday that the server results presented by the petitioners as the authentic results of the February 23, 2019 election were released by an anonymous official of the Independent National Electoral Commission.

Njoga called by the petitioners -the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar – told the Justice Mohammed Garba-led tribunal of five judges that he never knew the unknown INEC employee.

He described the unknown person as a whistleblower.

The petitioners are challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress at the poll.

Njoga was earlier called to the witness box by the petitioners’ lawyer, Chief Chris Uche (SAN).

Under cross-examination by INEC’s lawyer, Yunus Usman, he said he analysed the results of the election obtained from INEC’s server and published on a website, http://www.factsdontlie.com.

According to the witness, the website was created on March 12, 2019.

Fielding more questions, he said, “The site does not belong to INEC but the data it contains is from INEC server.”

He confirmed that he had “never worked with INEC before”.

He added, “Normally, websites are designed for different purposes. The information on the website is from an INEC official.”

Asked, the witness said, “The results on the website are from INEC server

The name of the INEC official is anonymous. He is a whistleblower.”

Asked if he knew the whistle-blower he said “No”.

Asked if the whistleblower was a robot, he said, “My lords, robots do not create websites.”
