In another development, the viral claim that Peter Obi won the 2023 presidential election in 19 states based on results uploaded on INEC’s IReV has been described as misleading.

According to a report by Dubawa, a fact-checking organisation, results from polling units across Nigeria had yet to be completely uploaded on the IReV portal as of March 7.

The report also found that the result uploaded by a Facebook user, which showed LP’s victory in about 18 states, including the FCT, was not from the IReV portal but from a poll by Nextier.
