The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has denied withdrawing passwords from some of its local government supervisors in Imo State.
INEC explained that it has released the passwords for uploading results to the Presiding Officers.
The Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman, Rotimi Oyekanmi, said the claim by unknown concerned workers that the commission withdrew the password from APO1s was false.
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drawn to a story attributed to unknown ‘concerned workers’ of the commission that passwords for result upload have been withdrawn from LGA Supervisors for use by APO1s in Imo State.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 untrue.
“For the avoidance of doubt, Presiding Officers (POs), and not APO1s, are responsible for result upload to the IReV.
“All the passwords have been securely released for use by designated officials in line with the commission’s procedure.
The public should expect more of such insinuations before, during, and after the elections and continue to discountenance them.”
