NAN reports that the tribunal on June 24, in a ruling, dismissed by the claims by the PDP and Abubakar that INEC electronically transmitted the results of the February  23 poll to the said central server.

INEC denied the claim, insisting that it never transmitted the results of the polls any server whatsoever, but that the results were collated and declared manually.

President Muhammadu Buhari and his All Progressives Congress, whose victory at the polls is being challenged by the petitioners at the tribunal, also opposed the petitioners’ request for access to the said INEC’s server. (NAN)
