The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied allegations that it intends to stop sending polling unit results and switch to the INEC Result Viewing (IReV) webpage instead.
Festus Okoye, national commissioner and head of the information and voter education committee, revealed this on Friday in Abuja.
He asserts that it is blatantly incorrect to state that INEC intended to rig the general elections of 2023 by abandoning the direct and real-time electronic upload of PUs results to the IReV portal by the Registration Area Technical Support Staff (RATECHSS).

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has assured Nigerians time and time again that it will transmit results directly from the polling places, as was the case in the governorship elections for Ekiti and Osun States as well as 103 additional constituencies where bye-elections and off-cycle governorship/FCT Area Council elections were held since August 2020. The portal still offers access to the findings.
One of the innovations used by the Commission to guarantee the accuracy and legitimacy of election results in Nigeria is the IReV. Therefore, it is improbable that the Commission will reverse course and attack its own innovations.
The general populace is urged to disregard the reports. For voter accreditation and real-time uploading of polling unit results in Nigeria, the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) and IReV have established themselves, according to Okoye.
