2. Confident Jega believes INEC can’t be hacked.
With all due respect to the geeks at the technology department of INEC, anyone can be a victim of hacking.
The Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Attahiru Jega, however, disagrees, saying he believes that the database of the electoral body cannot be hacked into by anybody.
“As far as I am concerned, our database cannot be hacked; if that happens, then someone on the inside must have compromised because we have in place checks and balances that if such happens, we will know who did it.”
