INEC Refutes Alleged Manipulation Of Accreditation Data On IReV In Kogi Election

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) refuted claims yesterday alleging that it manipulated the accreditation data on the INEC Result Viewing (IReV) portal during the off-cycle election in Kogi State on Saturday, November 11, 2023.

In a statement, INEC spokesperson, Mohammed Kudu Haruna, said that the reports from some media houses alleging that the Commission tampered with the accredited figures of voters in the Kogi governorship election results uploaded on the IReV portal are unfounded.

He said the BVAS is designed to primarily work offline without internet connectivity, which facilitates a faster and more seamless authentication and accreditation experience for voters.

However, when its application is active or in use, depending on the strength of its connection to the internet, BVAS automatically exports the accreditation data to the Accreditation Backend System (ABS).

Explaining further, he said this exportation of data does not happen when the device’s application is inactive or when the internet connectivity is poor, and the accreditation data cannot be changed on BVAS after the close of polls.
