The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday denied having a server where the results of the February 23 presidential election were uploaded.
INEC stated this position at the ongoing Presidential Election Petitions Tribunal in Abuja .

Through their lawyers led by Levy Uzoukwu, the PDP and Mr Abubakar asked the tribunal to compel INEC to grant them access to the server and smart card readers used in the conduct of the election.

He said, “I have consulted my conscience, my family and political family and it is time to distance myself from the litigation challenging the electoral victory of the governor of Imo State.

“Ihedioha was brought by God and it is right that we support him to succeed.”
Nwosu, a son-in-law to former Governor Rocha’s Okorocha, was Chief of Staff in the previous Imo government.
