A witness said today at the tribunal that he was threatened and forced to sign the result of the poll
A witness from jigawa state, Mohammed Tata, said today at the tribunal that he was threatened and forced to sign the result of the poll and that if he doesn’t, he won’t benefit from the N-Power.
Tata claimed he signed the result under intense duress during the last presidential election.
Mohammed Tata, an agent of the PDP in Jigawa at the general election, further said he doesn’t care who wins the unit he was assigned to, but all he wants is to see justice in the country.
He claimed 700 votes won by APC in his unit could not be proven as there was no score, because there was no election.
Mohammed claimed to have complained about the incident, but nothing happened.
A witness before him, Peter, claimed he was trained with others to transmit election results.
He was allegedly trained with others to transmit codes they used to send results to the server.
The INEC counsel Yunus Usman said Peter had no right to transmit results as he wasn’t the presiding officer.
However, the witness challenged it; Peter said, “You are wrong, sir, INEC trained us to transmit results.
He confirmed he’s not a presiding officer; neither was he a polling agent. He said he was a registration area technician appointed by INEC and was trained by INEC.
