Tinubu, INEC, kick as Amazon staff testifies in, LP, Obi’s petition

A staff of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Clarita Mpeh Ogah, yesterday, testified at the Presidential Election Petition Court (PEPC) in the petition filed by Labour Party and its candidate, Mr Peter Obi challenging the result of the February 25 election won by President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In her evidence in chief, the witness a Cloud Engineer and Architect, told the court that nothing went wrong on INEC server on the day of the presidential election on February 25.

According to her, all the six regions where their services are hosted have been operational without issues including the United States, Aftica and many more.

The subpoenaed witness, was called by the petitioners to prove to that electronic transmission of the February 25 presidential election results was not prevented by “technical glitches” as claimed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Led in evidence-in- chief by counsel to the petitioners, Patrick Ikwueto, Ogah who lives in Abuja and Maryland, United States, said she currently works with a tech company, Amazon Web Services Incorporated, AWS.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had engaged the services of AWS to secure the results of the 2023 general election.

However, the lead counsel to INEC, Abubakar Mahmoud, told the court that he was given the witness disposition, including several reports, shortly before commencement of proceedings and would need time to study it.

After adopting her witness statement as PW7, she also adopted her resume and employment verification letter as an employee of AWS.

Also admitted were six reports showing the health status of AWS dashboard of cloud services in 33 regions and certificates of compliance.

Responding to the documents tendered by the witness, counsel to INEC, Mahmoud, said he has no objection to the witness curriculum vitae “but I do have objection to the so called letter of employment with AWS.”

counsel to Tinubu and APC objected to the tendering of the witnesses’ resume and letter of employment.

But the panel admitted her official documents including her reports as Peter Obi’s evidence.
