INEC has confirmed there are challenges with its Results Viewing Portal


February 27, 2023

INEC has confirmed that there are challenges with its Results Viewing Portal (IReV) noting that Unlike in off-season elections where the portal was used, it has been relatively slow and unsteady.

In a statement, the National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye noted that 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.

While the Commission assures Nigerians that the challenges are not due to any intrusion or sabotage of its systems, and that the IReV remains well-secured, it also assures 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, which cannot be tampered with.

It further promise that as any discrepancy between them and the physical results used in collation will be thoroughly investigated and remediated.
