Keyamo Issues Strong Warning Over Viral Videos Showing INEC Confession On How 2019 Was Rigged…See Details

Festus Keyamo, a legal luminary and the spokesman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), presidential campaign council has disclosed that some videos circulating over the media space showing how staff of the electoral body ,INEC, rigged the presidential poll held on February 23, 2019 presidential doesn’t have an effect according to the provisions of the Electoral Act and INEC guidelines.

The electoral body had announced President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress as the winner of the presidential poll after scoring 15,191,847 votes to defeat his opponent from the main opposition party, the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

While releasing tweets from his Twitter handle on Thursday, the lawyer issued a warning that whatever video or evidence there were, they could not withstand the provisions of the Electoral Act or those on INEC guidelines.

His Tweets reads below.

“Without referring to any particular pending Election Petition, there’s a need to generally guide Nigerians not to gullibly fall for the fantasy created by any video circulating where INEC official(s) spoke of INEC’s plan to electronically transmit results before the elections.


“The video(s) of some INEC official(s) expressing intention to electronically transmit results are only circulated for entertainment. That procedure is neither contained in the Electoral Act nor in INEC’s Guidelines. Courts are only guided by these documents and not such videos.

“Also, what you plan to do may be different from what you actually did. Assuming INEC planned to transmit electronically, the moment it said after the election that it did not do so, the matter ends there, especially as the Electoral Act and the guidelines do not allow it to do so.

“In anticipation of the electronic transmission, some crooks concocted fictitious results and perhaps in connivance with certain INEC insiders (or by hacking) tried to upload those results into the server. The fact that electronic transmission didn’t happen destroyed their plan.

“The irony is that the real cheats are the ones struggling to create a narrative that they were cheated; the real crooks are the ones struggling to convince everyone that the system is crooked; those who actually planned to steal the people’s mandate are the ones crying foul.

“The noise about electronic transmission of INEC results is akin to a student who wants to cheat in an exam and enters the hall with prepared answers, not noticing that the set questions are not exactly framed as expected.

“So, when he’s later told he failed, he says it’s impossible!”
