The Imo State local government supervisors claim that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) took away their passwords.
The Presiding Officers’ passwords for uploading results have been released, INEC said.
The claim by unnamed concerned employees that the commission removed the password from APO1s was refuted by INEC’s chief press secretary, Rotimi Oyekanmi.
In a statement issued on Friday, Oyekanmi said: “The attention of the Independent National Electoral Commission has been drawn to a story attributed to unknown ‘concerned workers’ of the commission that passwords for result upload have been withdrawn from LGA Supervisors for use by APO1s in Imo State. This is not the case.
Presiding Officers (POs), not APO1s, are in charge of uploading results to the IReV.
According to the protocol established by the Commission, all passwords have been safely distributed to the appropriate personnel.
To paraphrase, “the public should expect more of such insinuations before, during, and after the elections and continue to discountenance them.”
