2023 Election: What INEC Told Us Is Different From What The Amazon Web Told Us-Katch Ononuju

Katch Ononuju, a member of the Labour Party, has disputed the Independent National Electoral Commission's (INEC) claim that technical issues prevented the real-time broadcasting of the presidential election results on February 25, 2023. During an interview on PLUS TV's 'Plus Politics,' Ononuju, who is Peter Gregory Obi's Personal Adviser on Public Affairs, alleged that Amazon Web Services, the company hosting INEC's Results Viewing portal (IReV) server, also provides comparable services to the US Military. Ononuju reported that Amazon, when contacted, denied that any faults were reported on the IReV during and after the presidential election.

Ononuju also claimed that the US Department of Defense would not have hired a company that could not handle the kinds of problems INEC stated their servers faced on Election Day. According to Ononuju, Amazon Web Services confirmed that no one hacked into the INEC server before, during, or after the presidential election and that the system worked correctly throughout. Thus, he claims INEC's assertion that there were issues with the IReV portal is false.

Ononuju raised concerns about INEC's technical proficiency, noting that the electoral authority had previously claimed to have a backup system that could take over if the main server failed. He speculated that INEC may have intentionally delayed the transmission of results to influence the election's outcome. Ononuju questioned whether the technical problems experienced by INEC were genuinely responsible for the delay or whether they were a cover-up for other motives.
