‘The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar will on February 16 launch a mystery technology that hinders rigging during the election.
This was disclosed by one of the spokesmen for the PDP Presidential Campaign Council, Osita Chidoka while speaking with newsmen at the PDP legacy house, Abuja.
The mystery technology which is called Parallel Voting Tabulation (PVT) is a scientific tool that prevents rigging and assures the partisans of the credibility of the election result.
The PDP has said that the PVT has been set in its situation room to hold election authorities accountable when there is lack of trusts in the result released.
The party has deployed unprecedented number of trained party agents to each of the 176,000 polling units across the country to monitor the election.
Chidoka said: “The PVT is a tool that will assure that PDP partisans accept the result of the elections, and that the country remains peaceful and respectful of its differences. We are aware that other PVTs will be conducted by civil societies.
“Our methodology accounts for several different scenarios to ensure continued collation of the results in the event of any disruptions with collation process.
“Hard copies of the signed voter tally provided to all party agents by the NEC officers, will be transported to the central command centre should future disputes need to be reconciled.
“We have built a national network of fully equipped situation rooms and call centers.”
“PDP has established a reporting system for the PVT through the wards, to the district headquarters, to the states, to the national tally center.
“The system has redundancies built at all levels – in the event of an internet or communications shutdown or failure or any other eventualities.
“The scope of the effort is historic for Nigeria, and it will provide us with statistical certainty to accept or challenge the declared result.
” The PDP is deploying an unprecedented number of trained party agents to each of the 176,000 polling units across the country to monitor the election, he added.
NOVIA’S NOTES: If you had any doubt that PDP wasn’t ready for the rigging plans of the Buhari administration for the elections, this piece of news should remove such doubts. Told you many times before that Atiku will not allow himself to be rigged out.
Just go out and vote and leave the rest for the politicians.
