The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential hopeful, Atiku Abubakar, Friday night, expressed that the Managing Director of Activate Technologies Limited, Mohammed Sani Musa, whose organization provided the machines utilized in printing the Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), is the applicant of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Niger East Senatorial locale for Saturday's survey.
In an announcement Friday night by his Special Assistant on Public Communication, Atiku expressed that the disclosure was an aftereffect of its broad knowledge gathering system to distinguish and keep the decision gathering's baldfaced and eventually fizzled endeavors to fix the outcomes.
"It is open information that Sani Musa, famously known as Sani 313 is a card conveying individual from the APC and a nearby partner of a few stalwarts of the gathering, including President Muhammadu Buhari who obviously pushed his selection", the announcement peruses.
"Be that as it may, amazingly, the APC Senatorial contender for Zone B of Niger State, Mr. Mohammed Musa, has an agreement with INEC to supply key casting a ballot materials in a race he is taking part in, which is a reasonable irreconcilable circumstance and brings up issues of honesty and oversight in the issuing of INEC contracts.
"The INEC contract was to 'redesign' the card perusers and to print PVC cards. Further examinations have demonstrated that the 'redesign' comprised of pre-programming the card perusers to acknowledge counterfeit reproduction PVCs (duplicates of certified PVCs) that the firm imprinted in Nigeria. These two exercises were attempted with the goal that the APC could support its vote count in its fortifications or power cast a ballot in Polling Units at PDP fortresses to be invalid and void by over-casting a ballot .
"Our examination additionally distinguished the seven States where this movement was because of occur and we have accordingly educated the Observer Community and our own broad system of more than 176,000 Party Agents with the goal that they can thwart this action by checking cards as permitted under INEC rules.
"Given that that Mr. Musa's past organization, Act Technologies, had an agreement to supply and introduce PVC card printers in the INEC Headquarters, it does make one wonder why Mr Musa's new organization, Activate Technologies, was given an ensuing contract to print PVC cards itself?
"Different examinations have uncovered that a worker and Director of Activate Technologies and an APC part, Mr. Mohammed Keffi, was taped at Abuja Airport Domestic Departure Lounge on 29th December opening an authority INEC envelope and after that taking care of different ticket shapes which he was verifying against his cell phone.
"Sources additionally affirmed that this individual was one of the general population who was stacking the phony card numbers into the 'overhauled' card perusers in the Residence of the previous Governor of Akwa Ibom, just as other 'Card Reader Farms' in Abuja and Kano. These 'ranches' are under watchman by individuals from Government Security organizations."
Atiku said while Alhaji Sani Musa has the directly to hold any open office disregarding his line of business, it is ethically outlandish to permit an outstanding provider of delicate INEC materials to share in a decision in which the key materials to be utilized for the survey were provided by him.
"An inquiry at the Corporate Affairs Commission demonstrated that the vast majority of the chiefs in Act Technologies are equivalent to those in Activate Technologies. The executives of Activate Technologies aside from Musa (presently APC applicant) include: Abubakar Musa, Kabiru Abdullahi Bawa, Suleiman Danladi, Akinsuyi Akin Najeem. Actuate Technologies situated on Ganges Street, Maitama, discovered that is shares indistinguishable location from Act Technologies."
He regretted that Activate Technologies was given shrinks by INEC to supply PVCs for the 2019 general decisions regardless of the way that the proprietor of the firm is a competitor in tomorrow's survey.
