The President Muhammadu Buhari Marketing campaign Organisation was swift in responding to the EU report yesterday.
Spokesman for the group, Mr. Festus Keyamo (SAN) queried some points of the report and declared the doc not definitive sufficient.
Keyamo who was Buhari’s agent on the collation centre disputezd the Mission’s declare that the collation of the election outcomes was not clear sufficient.
Based on him, “There are points of the report that aren’t definitive sufficient. As an example, if they are saying the outcome collation course of is just not clear sufficient, I count on them to be very clear as to what they count on to occur over and above or past what we now have within the Electoral Act presently.
“I can see that they count on that outcome from every unit is made identified and revealed. Nevertheless, you’ll be able to see that the Electoral Act permits for the Type EC8A from every of the polling items to be given to brokers of the political events.
“They did agree that these outcomes got here from brokers of the political events; they didn’t see anyplace the place social gathering brokers have been denied copies of Type EC8As.
“Once more, the Electoral Act permits for the Type EC8A to be pasted at every polling unit. Pasting is publication should you didn’t know.
“So this Type EC8A was revealed in every of the polling items, so I don’t need Nigerians to go away with the impression that these outcomes from every polling unit weren’t revealed.
“The one factor that I’ll agree with their report is that they need it to be centrally revealed on INEC web site.
“I do agree however there is no such thing as a mechanism to routinely publish it now as a result of there is no such thing as a provision for automated digital transmission of outcomes and that is the crux of this election. “There is no such thing as a provision for that and I anticipated them to speak about that rather a lot of their suggestions.
“They need to have dwelt on the crux of our election now which is digital transmission. They know that that system collapsed in Kenya so we shouldn’t be fast to leap and comply with the world after we know that technologically we aren’t ripe for that but.
“As for us, we knew that the opposition was solely banking on that; we knew they have been simply banking on ready in Abuja, hacking right into a server if it was obtainable, planting a outcome and declaring a winner.
“However it doesn’t work out that approach as a result of there have to be state by state collation of outcomes Secondly, and most significantly, the EUROM failed to debate the report of different observers. These have been native observers, regional observers, continental who got here to the conclusion that regardless of these hiccups right here and there, the outcomes mirrored the needs of the generality of Nigerians.
“If you’re an observer, you have to be definitive in your report. There is no such thing as a want being dodgy about it as a result of we now have 120,000 polling items throughout the nation. In all of the reviews, I don’t assume they mentioned greater than two polling items.”
