Tinubu speaks on owning that creates PVC and card readers

Nigeria News

APC chieftain, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has reacted to a report that he owns ACT Technologies, a company responsible for printing permanent voters cards, PVC, and card readers.

The company which reportedly manipulated results in the 2015 elections is said to supply materials to the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Reacting to the report that he is among the owners of the tech company, Tinubu through his spokesman Tunde Rahman denied the claims via a statement seen below.

“If lies were sand, this story would be a desert. Perhaps the only thing this story manages to get correct is the spelling of Asiwaju’s name. However, the story is but an unfortunate and crude attempt to malign Asiwaju’s name. Asiwaju has absolutely no relation to, or interest in, Act Technologies Limited. He had never even heard of the company until the PDP (and its cronies in the media) started this campaign of calumny a few days ago,”

“Moreover, Asiwaju has never been involved in the supply of card readers, voter registration and accreditation frameworks or any other materials or services to INEC. Never.

“Let us be clear in this matter. If any political party was in control of INEC’s procurement practices in 2014/2015, it would have been the one in control of the federal government at that time. Asiwaju never asked for, nor did he receive, anything or any contract from Jonathan’s government. As incompetent as his administration was, even President Jonathan would not have sat idly by while important electoral contracts were being handed over to his most implacable political foe. As often happens with fiction concocted by amateurs, the application of a little common sense causes the entire story to fall apart.

“Even the technological aspects of the report are fantastical and unfounded. The whole thing simply makes no sense from a technical point of view.

“The report only makes sense as part of a concerted effort to attack Asiwaju. Why the PDP and their media boosters fear him so much, we leave for them to answer. But it is odd that they expend so much time and energy manufacturing falsehoods against someone whose name will not even appear on any ballot.

“This story is simply another effort by those opposed to President Buhari and the APC to justify their plans to distort the elections by alleging that the APC government is illegitimate and was rigged into office.

“The only problem being that the facts do not support their claims nor their rationale for cheating. These people are incurable. They do not rig because they were once victimized by rigging. They rig because rigging is not only in their blood, it is their blood.

“Such errant nonsense has no place in our national discourse”, Tinubu stated.

R. Kelly’s Attorney demands for copies of his sex tape as RnB star appears in court Friday

Published

on

 

R.Kelly and his legal team on Friday during his pretrial hearing demanded to get their hands and eyes on the alleged sex tapes that prompted the 10 counts of sexual abuse.

Kelly’s attorney, Steven Greenberg, tells TMZ there’s no guarantee what they will get right off the bat, could be police reports, case material from Kelly’s 2008 trial but, obviously, the items they’re most anxious to see are the 2 tapes Michael Avenatti turned over to Cook County prosecutors.

Greenberg says he hasn’t seen the tapes,  which Avenatti claims show Kelly engaged in various sex acts with a 14-year-old girl, so he can’t really begin to mount a defense strategy. Once he does get them, a couple different things could happen.

Kelly also asked the judge to let him travel to Dubai for work. Recall he had to surrender his passport when he got arrested.

However, the judge did not rule on whether Kelly’s team will get copies just yet. Greenberg added the sex tapes should be protected from public viewing.
