APC Chieftain Reveals Why INEC didn’t adopt electronic transmission of results

Ekene Enefe, who is a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), has explained why the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) didn’t transmit election results electronically during last Saturday’s presidential and national assembly elections, which were held last week.  

The APC claimed that several political parties hired hackers from Russia and Israel to tamper with the outcome of the general elections in 2023, which eventually didn't work as they had expected. 

He was a guest on Arise Television's The Morning Show on Friday.

Enefe said, "Each party has a situation room, and they are informed of the results." The results being delivered to the gateway were the item they wanted to hold onto since they knew they were losing.

Yet, it is uncertain how many efforts have been made to hack into and attack the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission. This was done by political parties, who paid Russian and Israeli hackers to hack into the INEC system, transfer the results, and cause mayhem.

To the best of my knowledge, none of them were successful, hence the election was not transmitted on the INEC system.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Labour Party (LP), and a few other political parties invaded the National Collation Centre at the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Abuja during the collation of the presidential election results and demanded that it be suspended. Enefe's decision was made less than a week later.

Recall that the presidential election was won by Bola Ahmed Tinubu and that the decision of INEC has been challenged by Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, who have insisted that they are going to court.
