Abubakar Atiku, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), says the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is still performing below expectation.

Atiku spoke with reporters on Saturday after he cast his vote at polling unit 012, Ajiya Ward, Yola North LGA of Adamawa State.

The former vice-president expressed dismay over the reported low voter turnout in the state, the Cable News reports.

Atiku also said he was not confident that the electoral body would transmit results electronically from polling units.

“It is still below expectations,” he said.

“Honestly, INEC is already a discredited organisation, let’s hope they will improve on their past performance.

“I’m not quite hopeful (that results will be transmitted). I have not seen measures they have taken to improve their past performances.”

Atiku and Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), are challenging the victory of President-elect Bola Tinubu at the election tribunal.

They are both contesting the outcome of the presidential election on the basis that INEC failed to transmit results from polling units in real-time, among other issues.
