INEC Chairman May Be In Trouble, As New Evidence Shows The Existence Of A Central Server

A leaked internal circular of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, indicated that the Electoral body transmitted voter accreditation data during the 2019 Presidential election from smart card readers, to a central server.
The memo, dated March 25, 2019, was posted on Twitter, on Wednesday, by Reno Omokri, a former Aide to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan.
The document showed that the Secretary to the Commission, Mrs. Rose Oriaran-Anthony, directed INEC Resident Electoral Commissioners to provide feedback on challenges, experiences, during the election, including failure to transmit voter accreditation data to a server.
It stated: “The Commission has observed with deep concerns, the number of smart card readers that do not have data of accredited voters in the just concluded Presidential/NASS elections, nationwide.
“The total number of smart card readers without accreditation data is 4,786, nationwide, which stands at about 4 percent of the total smart card readers deployed for that election. Attached is the chart, showing the PUs not uploaded to the smart card readers accreditation backend, for each of the States.”
Oriaran-Anthony further instructed the RECs to direct their respective Heads of Department, ICT, to download the list of the polling units without accreditation data for their States from a provided web link.

She added: “You are please requested to liaise with your HOD Election Operations, and the Electoral Officers, to provide comments beside each PU, stating why there are no accreditation data. The comments should reflect what happened to the smart card readers, or the results of the PU: covering cases where election did not hold, cancellation of PU results, stolen or destroyed smart card readers, etc. This should be submitted in both soft and hard copies, latest by Thursday, 28th May, 2019.”

When contacted, the INEC Director of Publicity and Voter Education, Mr, Oluwole Osaze-Uzzi, said: “Anything to do with server is before the Tribunal. I cannot comment on anything, sorry.”

Recall, that the Commission had said during the ongoing Presidential Election Petition Tribunal, that it did not have a central server during the 2019 elections, adding that, the operation of a server would go against the Electoral Act.
