Peter Uzioma Obi, a witness presented by the Peoples Democratic Party and its 2019 presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar says he was trained to transmit results of the 2019 presidential polls.
Obi said he was one of the registration area technicians appointed by the Independent National Electoral Commission during the 2019 presidential election.
He was the second witness presented by the PDP today, speaking after Buba Galadima.
While responding to questions under cross-examination from INEC’s lawyer, Yunus Usman, he said it will be wrong to say that the results of the presidential polls were not transmitted electronically.
INEC had said that it does not have a server where results of the presidential elections were electronically transmitted.
The commission said it only used an electronic server as experiment during some state governorship elections in 2018.
Through their petition, PDP and Atiku are challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress.
A spokesperson for the Atiku Campaign Organization, Buba Galadima, was presented as the first witness in the petition.
