The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is under fire from the Segun Oni Campaign Organization (SOCO) for allegedly purposefully delaying the upload of the results of the Ekiti State governorship election on Saturday, June 18.
According to SOCO, the delay was necessary to perfect the fabricated results that had been used to declare Mr. Biodun Oyebamiji, the candidate for the All Progressives Congress (APC), the winner.
This was stated in a statement provided to the media in Ado-Ekiti on Saturday by Mr. Jackson Adebayo, the campaign organization’s director of media and publicity.
The compilation of materials by the legal team and the filing of the petition by the Social Democratic Party (SDP) governorship candidate, Asiwaju Segun Oni, to challenge the victory of the APC candidate, Mr. Biodun Oyebamiji, at the election petition tribunal are both made more challenging because, according to Adebayo, INEC summary of local government results on Form EC8C and summary of Ekiti State election results on Form EC8D are still to be uploaded on the
The SOCO’s Spokesman questioned why INEC should be afraid to upload the results if not because it wants to perfect the fabricated numbers it used to rig for the APC before uploading the results to its server. The SOCO said INEC has so far uploaded summary of units results on Form EC8A and Ward results on FORM EC8B.
Because the INEC has no justification for delaying uploading the results two weeks after the election, Adebayo said this should be looked into.
