Home AFRICA Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has come under attack for criticizing June 12 Democracy Day celebration. A statement from President Muhammadu Buhari Media Organisation signed by the chairman, Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, accused Obasanjo of not seeing anything good in another leader, as he had rated late President Umar Yar’Adua and former President Goodluck Jonathan’s administrations low. Also, his eight-year administration (1999-2007) came under questioning for allegedly doing nothing on the assassination of the late Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Chief Bola Ige. BMO said that Obasanjo was just being petty and mischievous with his latest tirade against President Muhammadu Buhari on the occasion of the maiden celebration of June 12 as Democracy Day in the country. The statement claimed that he (Obasanjo) was bitter that President Buhari took measured steps to immortalise the late Moshood Abiola, the presumed winner of the June 12 1993 election.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it does not have the server where  the PDP claim results of the presidential election were uploaded.

 

The electoral commission is reacting to the request of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who had asked the tribunal to compel INEC to allow them inspect smart card readers and the server.

 

The opposition party and its candidate are challenging the declaration of President Buhari as winner of the presidential election that held in February. At the tribunal on Thursday, Yunus Usman, counsel to INEC, said the party was asking something they did not have.

 

“They are asking us to bring something we do not have,” the lawyer said. Usman asked the tribunal to strike out the application. Also, counsels of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Buhari asked the tribunal to strike out the application of the PDP.

 

They argued that they could not prove the existence of a server. The electoral commission said Buhari polled 15,191,847 votes to defeat the former vice-president who secured 11, 262,978. But Atiku in his application claimed that he polled 18,356,732 votes while Buhari secured 16,741,430, citing INEC’s server.
