The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the February 25, 2023, election, Atiku Abubakar has argued that there was no failure of the server as claimed by the Independent National Electoral Commision (INEC).
Bellnewsonline.com reports that Atiku and the PDP, in a 66-page petition lodged before the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) sitting at the Court of Appeal in Abuja, said they would adduce evidence to show that the “server,” being cloud-based, in the event of any unlikely challenge, Amazon Web Service would have seamlessly switched to another server without hitch, being autoscaling groups with multiple network reception and offline upload options.
“The petitioners contend that the technology system deployed by the 1st Respondent underwent Quality Assurance Tests (“QAT”) before acquisition and deployment.
“The 1st Respondent is, hereby, given notice to produce the QAT Report that was prepared by PricewaterhouseCoopers, PwC, as well as the Report of Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing, VAPT, by Consultant Suleiman Farouk of Sulfman Consulting Limited and all other subsequent and related reports on the system.
“The petitioners contend that the so-called ‘glitch’ was a bypass to tilt and switch the results of the presidential election in favour of the 2nd and 3rd Respondents,” they said.
