2023: E-transmission of Election Results has Come to Stay – INEC

INEC

Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu has assured Nigerians that the results of the 2023 general elections would be transmitted electronically.

Yakubu who hosted a delegation of Media Trust Group on Wednesday August 17, said electronic transmission of elections results from the polling units (PUs) would be a permanent feature in the nation’s electoral processes.

He said; “Yes, it is going to be permanent in all elections conducted by the commission going forward. But I wish to draw your attention to the fact that we did not start the electronic transmission, at least, from the polling units to the IReV Portal, in Anambra or FCT elections.

“It was actually on August 2020 that we deployed that for the Nasarawa Central State Constituency by-election, the first election conducted under COVID-19.

“So, if you look at the IReV Portal, you could see all the results from the 2020 to the Ekiti and Osun governorship elections and all the other by-elections we conducted.”
