The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says its result viewing (IReV) portal has come under attack from hackers across the world. Mahmood Yakubu, INEC chairman, said this while delivering a keynote address at a stakeholders’ conference on election result management on Friday in Abuja.

The conference was organized by YIAGA Africa, a civil society organization (CSO), to launch the election result analysis dashboard (ERAD) report agenda.

Yakubu said the commission has recorded several attempts to hack the cyber security system of the result viewing portal.” Another technical concern for us is the repeated attempts to break through our cyber security system for the portal,” he said.
