The Independent National Electoral Commission has denied reports making the rounds that its Results Viewing Portal (IRev) portal has been attacked.
Festus Okoye, a National Commissioner with INEC, said the claim is false.
He said the commission takes responsibility for the problems and regretted the distress that they have caused the candidates, political parties and the electorate.
“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,” he said.
“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,” he added.
