INEC Speak Up On Reports Of Abandoning of Electronic Transmission of Results

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Friday said that reports in a section of the media that it wants to rig the 2023 general elections by abandoning the direct and real-time electronic upload of Polling Units (Pus) results to the INEC Result Viewing (IReV) portal by the Registration Area Technical Support Staff (RATECHSS), is plainly false.

Prompt News reports that INEC’s commissioner for information and voter education, Festus Okoye, said this in Abuja.

“The commission has repeatedly reassured Nigerians that it will transmit results directly from the polling units as we witnessed in Ekiti and Osun State Governorship elections and 103 more constituencies where off-cycle Governorship/FCT Area Council elections and bye-elections were held since August 2020. The results can still be viewed on the portal.

“The IReV is one of the innovations introduced by the Commission to ensure the integrity and credibility of election results in Nigeria. It is therefore inconceivable that the Commission will turn around and undermine its own innovations.


“The public is advised to ignore the reports. The Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) and IReV have come to stay,” Okoye said.
