INEC Server: Statement IS Reckless, Mischievously -Prof. Jega





Professor Attahiru Jega has distanced himself from a statement credited to him on the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

A comment generated on social media had quoted Professor Jega to have said that an INEC server existed and was functioning during his time as INEC boss.

However, Jega has now denied the statement describing it as reckless and mischievously.

In a text message to Premium Times through an associate, Professor Jega denied making the statement, describing it as ‘reckless.’

He noted that the commission under his watch did not at any time transmit results electronically.

“This is another lie mischievously attributed to me. I never said this. Besides, INEC during my time did not do electronic transmission of results. Under our current electoral laws, it is illegal to do so. “I am at a loss as to why some reckless people go the extra mile to attribute things to me, which I have never said. I have never said this. It is a repugnant lie,” the text message read.

Despite Professor Jega’s denial, serious controversies about INEC server continue to rage on in political settings.

INEC, however, insists that it did not use electronic transmission of results for the 2019 general election, citing late release of the commission’s 2019 budget as a major reason why the move failed.
