The Peoples Democratic Party presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar has asked the National Chairman of INEC Prof Mahmood Yakubu, to instruct the collation officers to upload the results from the polling units to their server immediately.
The former vice-president said the move is necessary to checkmate some governors who are trying to compromise the results at the local government collation level.

In a statement released by his spokesman, Paul Ibe, Atiku said:
“It will be a disservice to Nigerians and a negation to democracy for anyone to subvert the will of the people as freely expressed in their votes of yesterday.
The Adamawa indigene also thanked Nigerians for coming to vote for him and pledged to continue to work hard to earn their trust and confidence.
“We are humbled and honored by the early projections, which indicate that the Nigerian people have seen in Atiku Abubakar the kind of leader that they want to lead them into a brighter future.”
