Election results are safe, INEC assures Nigerians
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has assured Nigerians that results from polling units are safe and issued a public apology regarding the challenges with the results viewing portal (IReV).
The commission gave the assurance in a statement by Mr Festus Okoye, National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee in Abuja on Sunday.
Okoye said the commission was aware of challenges with the IReV and its technical team were working assiduously to solve all outstanding challenges with the portal.
“Unlike in off-season elections where the portal was used, it has been relatively slow and unsteady.
“The commission regrets this setback, especially because of the importance of IReV in our results management process.
“The problem is totally due to technical hitches related to scaling up the IReV from a platform for managing off-season, state elections, to one for managing nationwide general elections.
“It is indeed not unusual for glitches to occur and be corrected in such situations.”
Okoye assured Nigerians that the challenges were not due to any intrusion or sabotage of INEC systems and that the IReV remained well-secured.
