Politicians

The Nigerian Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, has turned a laughing stock following comments about Nigerian politicians and integrity.

Prof. Osinbajo had  said Nigeria as a Nation is not short of ideas, projects or money but what the country is short of is men and women of integrity in the positions of power.

“As I repeated many times during the course of the campaign that our country is not short of idea, we are not short of projects; we are not short of money either; what we are short of is integrity in office. Corruption is the major problem that our country has faced and once we are able to deal with it effectively, our country will be the great nation that it ought to be.”

However, Nigerians who have reacted to his comment on social media have questioned the validity, as many make fun of him.

Received

The server mess which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has been drawn into is getting worse by the day.

According to a report by Premium Times, INEC received N1.47bn for servers for 2019 Presidential elections.

However, the commission continues to maintain that it doesn’t have a server and never transmitted results of the election electronically.

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of PDP, had said that he won the February 23 presidential election based on the results he got from INEC’s servers.

The report by Premium Times indicates that the INEC received N1.47 billion to replace and maintain computer servers for use during the 2019 general elections. The online medium reported that it was not clear how the servers, which store computer data, were used during the polls, adding that the finding raises fresh concerns over the commission’s recent claim it had no server for the elections.

INEC is being trailed by a controversy, as it tries to refute claims that it operated a central computer database that received election results.

Recall that the electoral commission declared Buhari winner of the February 16 election but Abubakar, his main challenger, rejected the decision, saying his victory was suppressed by INEC.

The INEC has disputed Abubakar’s claims, and has denied transmitting election results electronically or saving them on a server. The online medium claimed to have seen details of INEC’s budget for the 2019 elections, adding that the spending plan shows the electoral body collected from the federal government N1.47 billion for servers. Though, it requested for N2.27 billion. It was not clear whether the servers were used for the elections or whether election results were transmitted electronically.
