IREV Trends After INEC's Lawyer Allegedly Lied In Court

IREV has been trending after INEC’s lawyer allegedly lied in court.

News ToGo gathered that INEC’s lawyer identified as Owonikoko reportedly told a lie in court during the hearing of the 2023 presidential election case.

Supporters of Peter Obi have been calling him out online for making a false claim. According to them, Owonikoko told the court that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, announced that it would not transmit election results to the IREV. He referred to a news article published on The Tribune on February 23, 2023 as evidence to back his claim.

However, the supporters of the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate dug up the paper cited. In the paper, INEC stated that raw figures would not be transmitted. Presiding Officers were told to take a picture of the result from the result sheet and transmit to the iRev.

This means that the lawyer’s claim differed from the decision of electoral umpire on the issue. Peter Obi’s supporters have been calling out the lawyer and challenging his claim on the issue. The matter of transmitting results have been in the news after INEC failed to keep to its promise.

INEC will offer clarification on this issue.

BREAKING: CSU Finally Releases Tinubu's Record, Gender Reads Female

CSU has finally released Tinubu’s records.

News ToGo learned that Chicago State University (CSU) has complied with a court order to release the academic records of President Bola Tinubu, as requested by Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the recent elections.

Following a directive from the US district court for the northern district of Illinois over the weekend, CSU provided the requested academic records.

TheCable reports that the university confirmed that the format of the certificate in question matched Tinubu’s replacement dated June 27, 1997. However, the gender raises doubt. This is because Tinubu filled ”Male” and the university in the new document addressed him as ”Mr”, but some transcripts reportedly show ”F” which suggests ”Female”. This raises doubt in the issue.

However, Atiku and his legal team are following up on the issue after alleging serious discrepancies in Tinubu’s academic records. They also claim that those inconsistencies will help them prove that he was not fit to contest for President of Nigeria.

Recall that Tinubu made serious effort to block the release of his records but the US courts ruled in Atiku’s favour. Atiku and his legal team will now go ahead to prove their case concerning the inconsistencies they discovered.
