The Independent National Electoral Commission has been accused of intentionally and recklessly uploading wrong results marked as completed on the INEC election portal.

In a video making rounds, agents of the Labour Party agents are been asked to upload the results from their polling units on social media.

This comes after checks on the INEC platform shows an incomplete entry.

The presidential results of a polling unit in Aladinma 002, was missing from the portal, leaving only the House of Representatives result. Whereas the portal showed "submitted result completed".

This has raised concerns that the INEC is involved in rigging the election in favour of other parties.

Since the election began, Nigerians have raised concerns following the happenings across polling units.

Reacting to the video on Twitter, some Nigerians said;

Skillz: Hope your results was uploaded in Aladinma? I left my PU at 1am. They wanted to play with us but we pass them. They gave fake website which refused to open with no login info. We digged by calling our contacts and the correct link and login details was provided to us.

Big ICE: INEC is like u want this election to be the last election u will conduct in Nigeria.. Nigerians are watching,, Africans are watching,, the whole world are watching.

Ezenwankwo Ekene: This election is just one massive joke.

With the way I argued and fought with INEC officials yesterday, INEC can never tell me she is an unbiased institution. Rubbish.

Mkpenimke Ekanem: That Man Might Be Correct In His Narrative. The Electoral Officials Of Polling Units Should Have Been More Careful & Mark What Was Sent. Some Can Do Careless Mistakes Due To Pressure From Some Agents Of Political Parties.
They Can Sort It Out From The Original Result Sheet.

OmO OLA: INEC needs to be scrapped for a better Nigeria.....
has no good for the benefit of Nigeria but for their pockets.....

#DaddySoft: @inecnigeria can't and should not be trusted

Amb. Timothy Ugbaja (ACFellow, OSL): They manipulated the logic at the backend to make provision for attaching illegal results on that space. It is intentional.

It cannot say completed while there is a missing file, in coding logic.

This is backend manipulation.
