‘Facts Don’t Lie Nigeria” Whistle-blower Website that could may Atiku Nigeria’s president
London, March 23, 2019 (AltAfrica)-Facts are emerging about why PDP presidential candidate in the February 23rd presidential election in Nigeria and his legal team are confident of victory at the election tribunal
After rejecting the declaration of incumbent Nigerian president, Muhammadu Buhari as the winner of the election, opposition party, PDP and its candidate, former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar approached election tribunal claiming among other things that internal compilation of results by INEC showed that the Peoples Democratic Party ‘scored’ 1.6 million votes more than president Buhari’s All Progressives Congress after all results had been collated from all but only Rivers, of the 36 states.
Paul Ibe, a spokesperson for Atiku Abubakar has let the cat out of the bag by revealing their source of confidence, It is a rogue website called “Facts Don’t Lie Nigeria” Mr Ibe then shared the link to the website.
The website was emblazoned on its front page with ‘The Truth Cannot Be Hidden’, and additional messages said it was put together by an INEC official who felt Mr Abubakar was cheated by the commission in declaring Mr Buhari winner of the election.
“What is in the public domain cannot be hacked. To hack is to breach defences & exploit weaknesses in a computer system or network. For your info, this is the site hosting the data submitted by Atiku & PDP. If you know, you know,” Mr Ibe said in response Yekini Nabena, a spokesperson for the APC who had posted one of the typical attacks against Mr Abubakar
The website contained external links holding PDF files, including screenshots of alleged INEC computers and voter accreditation data.
It is recalled that PDP and Atiku Abubakar formally approached the tribunal last week to make case for widespread irregularities and manipulation of votes against the INEC and President Muhammadu Buhari.
Atiku Abubakar’s lawyers, who recently boasted that they had enough evidence to overturn the presidential election in their client’s favour, have said they would call in forensic experts to analyse the information published on the anonymous website at the tribunal, alongside other materials from INEC.
