The National Vice Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Northwest, Mustapha Salihu claims that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, was deceived by scammers into believing that there was an INEC server used to transmit the results of the last election.
Salihu stated this during an interview with journalists after a meeting the APC stakeholders from Adamawa state on Friday, September 13, 2019.
According to him, those who told the former Vice President of the existence of a server succeeded in scamming him, stressing that even though his lawyers did a good job trying to present his case, they failed to establish a case. Salihu said:
“Some people robbed them [PDP and Atiku], took their money, telling them there was INEC server somewhere when that was not true.
“Even though their lawyers did a good job trying to present their case, it was dismissed because there was no substance.
“We have now done away with the distractions and this government is going to deliver the dividends of democracy and the next level is assured.
“The outcome of the tribunal is something that was expected.
“All the grounds canvassed by the opposition are frivolous because you cannot say that an army general who served as a commanding officer, Head of State, Minister and President of Federal Republic of Nigeria for four years does not have credentials.”
