INEC admits, regrets challenges with IReV portal

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has admitted facing challenges in uploading the results of presidential and National Assembly election on its Results Viewing Portal (IReV).

INEC further noted that unlike the situation in off-season elections where the portal was effectively used, it has been relatively slow and unsteady in last weekend’s election.

National Commissioner and Chairman Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, in a statement he signed and made available to newsmen in Abuja, however argued that it is not unusual for glitches to occur and be corrected in such situations.

The commission further blamed the situation on technical hitches related to scaling up the IReV from a platform for managing off-season, state elections, to one for managing nationwide general elections.

The commission is aware of challenges with the INEC Results Viewing Portal (IReV). 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,” the statement read.

While defending the situation further, the electoral umpire noted that it took full responsibility for the problems and regret the distress they have caused the candidates, political parties and the electorate.

“Consequently, the commission wishes to assure Nigerians that the challenges are not due to any intrusion or sabotage of our systems, and that the IReV remains well-secured.

Our technical team is working assiduously to solve all the outstanding problems, and users of the IReV would have noticed improvements since last night.

“We also wish to assure Nigerians that results from the Polling Units, copies of which were issued to political parties, are safe on both the BVAS and the IReV portal.

“These results cannot be tampered with and any discrepancy between them and the physical results used in collation will be thoroughly investigated and remediated, in line with Section 65 of the Electoral Act 2022.
