INEC Clears Name Amidst Accusations of Taxpayer Money Mismanagement Following Result Upload ‘Glitch’

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied allegations of wasting taxpayers’ money due to its failure to upload all the results of the February 25 presidential election on its Result Viewing Portal (IReV). INEC Chairman, Mahmood Yakubu, had previously acknowledged some glitches during the presidential and National Assembly polls. However, INEC spokesman, Festus Okoye, clarified during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today that it is incorrect to suggest that taxpayer’s money was wasted. He emphasized that the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) effectively facilitated voter accreditation and result upload for the elections.

Okoye further expressed that the glitch encountered during the upload of the presidential election results should not overshadow the overall success of the nationwide polls. He urged Nigerians not to judge the electoral commission solely based on this technical setback. Okoye highlighted that political parties are empowered by the law to be present at the polling units and obtain primary evidence of the results. With over 170,000 polling agents nominated and accredited by political parties, they have access to the essential data from the units. Therefore, it is inaccurate for a political party to solely rely on the result upload for their evidence in court.
