With the presidential election tribunal hearing now in full throttle, hidden facts about the controversial INEC server which the opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP) are strongly using to challenge the credibility of the results announced by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) that returned President Muhammed Buhari of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for a second term in office are gradually surfacing.
This is as a former presidential Senior Special Assistant on media who worked closely with those in the corridors of power at The Villa in a recent post online revealed the identity of the individual and company alleged to be the brains behind the controversy surrounding the INEC server.
According to Reno Omokri who served under the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan, a young Nigerian by name Femi Taiwo whose company INITS Nigeria Limited, located at 16 Majaro Street, Onike, Yaba, Lagos, Nigeria built the software that the Independent National Electoral Commission uses to run Nigerian Elections is the person behind the now-deleted INEC SERVER.
Also, in a document obtained by SecretReporters which could best be described as a Preliminary Investigative Summary on the controversial INEC Server which the commission earlier stated was non-existent, it was revealed that a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) belonging to INEC actually pointed to a server which was operational prior, during, and after the 2019 elections.
The server was also conclusively determined from investigations to contain data relative to the electoral process which could aide in the determination of a winner of the electoral exercise as it was said to include but not limited to; Polling unit data, Registration data, PVC data, Configuration for transmitting and receiving election data.
Further tests performed to determine the personnel behind the operation of the server so as to confirm if it was indeed operated by INEC or persons granted authority to do so on behalf of the commission returned the name of the Contractors as INITS Nigeria Limited with the Operators of Corp dubiously written as Mr Femi Domingo & Mrs Ronke Domingo, an Alias perfected by the co-founders to conceal their real legal names.
Mr Omokri however, stated that he was going to provide more evidence if the duo of Femi and Ronke Taiwo denied the allegation while urging Nigerian and foreign Journalist to interview the co-founder and CTO at INITS, Mr Femi Taiwo.
It still remains a doubt if any action will be taken by Nigerian security agencies to invite Femi for questioning on these allegations which bothers on National Security and even more doubtful if this will affect the outcome of the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal which last month dismissed the access request from the Peoples Democratic Party and its presidential candidate in the February 23, 2019 election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to inspect Servers which INEC maintained were non-existent and insisted that results of the election were not electronically transmitted into any server as alleged by the petitioners.
