INEC is Not Going Back on Electronic Transmission of Results – National Commissioner

Date:

The National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr Festus Okoye has disclosed that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is not going back on the electronic transmission of results during the 2023 elections. He revealed this over the weekend to clarify the talks that electoral results will be collated manually which is against the legislation regarding electronic transmission.

His statement read: “The Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) attention has been drawn to a misunderstanding arising from a recent short interview granted to a national newspaper on the procedure for result management during elections. Some have interpreted the explanation on result management procedure to mean that the Commission has jettisoned the electronic transmission of result and reverted to the manual process. This is not correct. For clarity, the procedure for result transmission remains the same as in recent governorship elections in Ekiti and Osun states. Electronic transmission of result has come to stay. It adds to the credibility and transparency of the process when citizens follow polling unit level results on the INEC Result Viewing (IReV) portal in real-time on Election Day. There will be no change in all future elections, including the 2023 General Election.

“The entire gamut of result management is provided for in Sections 60, 62 and 64 of the Electoral Act 2022. We appeal to all Nigerians to avail themselves of the provisions of the Electoral Act and the Commission’s detailed explanation of the procedure and not reach a conclusion on the basis of media headlines.”
