The Independent National Electoral Commission has distanced itself from reports making the rounds that the Commission was planning to rig the 2023 general election by abandoning the direct and real-time electronic upload of polling unit results to the INEC Result Viewing portal by the Registration Area Technical Support Staff.

This clarification was made known in a statement signed by its National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye on Friday.

According to the statement, the IReV is one of the innovations introduced by the Commission to ensure the integrity and credibility of election results in Nigeria which cannot be undermined.

The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to reports in a section of the media of alleged plans by the Commission to rig the 2023 General Election by abandoning the direct and real-time electronic upload of polling unit results to the INEC Result Viewing portal by the Registration Area Technical Support Staff.
