We only experimented with the Server, it was not for 2019 elections – INEC

Making clarification over the Server brouhaha, The Independent National Electoral Commission today, Monday, June 17, said that results of the 2019 general elections were not transmitted electronically to its server.

The Commission also stressed that they only experimented the technology during some staggered elections held in 2018.


The Commission said that the clarification was necessary because of rising controversies on the transmission of 2019 Presidential Election results from states to the INEC server.


INEC National Commissioner, Solomon Soyebi, explained that INEC experimented with electronic transmission of results during Anambra, Sokoto and Osun elections held before 2019 elections but the Commission did not sustain the use of the technology during the 2019 general elections.

He maintained that the late release of INEC’S budget for the 2019 elections and controversies over the Electoral Act, among others reasons, forced the Commission to jettison the idea of using the technology to transmit results to the central server.
