Okoye also said that INEC’s data recovery centres would be upgraded and all its platforms enhanced before the elections in order to forestall the constant attacks the platform had received from hackers and political actors,adding that the commission was determined to conduct free and fair elections in 2023.

He said, “The commission is firm and fixed on its resolve to conduct free, fair, transparent and inclusive elections.

“The commission will continue to be open and transparent in its technological innovations because election business is public business and the public has a right to know what the commission is doing.

“INEC will continue to gradually infuse technology in the electoral process to enhance transparency and verifiability in voter authentication and result management. The level of technological development in the country and the state of infrastructure will invariably impact on the technology the commission can deploy.
