The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has described apologizing to Nigerians over the widespread hiccups that characterized the February 25 elections as a nonissue. INEC said politicians and political parties also should be blamed for its subpar performance.
The Peoples Democratic Party and the Labour Party have accused the ruling All Progressives of violence, voter intimidation, and electoral fraud. The APC made its allegations of rigging against the PDP and Labour Party.
INEC said it was unhappy over its failure to upload the presidential election results in its server in real-time while blaming political parties and politicians for the outcome.
Asked if the commission would apologize to Nigerians for failing to upload the election results, Festus Okoye, spokesman for INEC, said, “The issue of apology or no apology does not arise. We have made it very clear that we are not happy with what happened with the results uploaded on February 25 presidential and National Assembly elections.”
