INEC Received N1.47bn For Servers For 2019 Presidential Elections




The server mess which the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has been drawn into is getting worse by the day.

According to a report by Premium Times, INEC received N1.47bn for servers for 2019 Presidential elections.

However, the commission continues to maintain that it doesn’t have a server and never transmitted results of the election electronically.

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of PDP, had said that he won the February 23 presidential election based on the results he got from INEC’s servers.

The report by Premium Times indicates that the INEC received N1.47 billion to replace and maintain computer servers for use during the 2019 general elections. The online medium reported that it was not clear how the servers, which store computer data, were used during the polls, adding that the finding raises fresh concerns over the commission’s recent claim it had no server for the elections.
