Atiku Is Coming!!! A Devoted Muslim INEC Official ‘Swears’ That Buhari Rigged The Election
An agent of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mohammed Tata, on Monday, told the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, in Abuja, that he was forced to sign the result sheet for the February 23, Presidential election in his Polling Unit, in Jigawa State.
Tata, the Petitioners’ fifth witness, testified at the instance of the PDP and its Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, who are by their petition challenging the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Under cross-examination by the Lawyer representing the Independent National Electoral Commission, Yunus Usman, SAN, Tata said that there was no election in his Polling Unit.
He stated that results were merely allocated, and he was forced to sign the result sheet or be removed as a beneficiary of the N-Power Scheme.
He revealed that the 700 votes which the INEC’s Lawyer said that the APC scored in the Unit, was false.
He said: “All the people signed, because they were asked to sign. They said they will remove me from N-Power, if I did not sign.
“‘We signed the results, because of harassment and intimidation.
“I do not know if the Agent of APC signed, because there were no elections in my Polling Unit sir.”
Responding to the claim that the APC scored 700 votes in the Polling Units, Tata said: “It was not scored, because there was no election in that Polling Unit.”
He debunked INEC Lawyer’s suggestion that he appeared in court to testify, because he is aggrieved by the outcome of the election.
He said: “Sir, my Lord, I am Muslim I believe in destiny, Buhari rigged the election.
“Whether PDP or APC wins is not my concern, what I need is justice in my country.”
Asked to respond specifically if he is happy with the outcome of the election, he said: “I am not happy with what happened.”
However, fielding question from Buhari’s Lawyer, Yusuf Ali, SAN, the witness maintained that he is still benefiting from the N-Power Scheme.
