Practically all the Returning Officers in the 36 States of the federation, including the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja are University Vice Chancellors, or eminent University professors. This is meant to lend credibility to whatever figures the system generates as election figures.

Professor Mahmood Yakubu, INEC Chairman.

Take for instance, the alleged electoral result of the presidential election that was said to have come from Yobe State:

Accredited votes: 601,056
Total votes cast: 586,137

Rejected votes: 226,772
APC: 497,914
PDP: 50,763
Sum: 775,449

When you sum it up, you will find out that it has passed the accredited votes with 174,393. So how does this obvious mistake rub off on the distinguished professor that announced it ?

Is it that it was hurriedly computed and given to him to announce and he failed to conduct due diligence ?

People are already saying that the figures in the election were deliberately calibrated to achieve seemingly innocuous genuine figures of actual votes cast. Speculations are rife, especially as the president rejected the bill for a much more modern voting system. As this gives room for manipulation, it rubs off negatively on the integrity of the exercise.

Let’s read the walkabout tweets from Reno Omokri, to get some insight figures that do not add up.
