Despite the INEC Chairman’s decision to allow for the electronic transmission of election results from polling units to the INEC server, officials of the Commission have failed to comply with the directive.
Ad-hoc officials present during the election have revealed that results will only be uploaded at the RAC center, citing the availability of better network coverage at the center.
This development has attracted criticism from voters, who have expressed concerns about the transparency and fairness of the gubernatorial and state house of assembly elections.
Many have accused INEC officials of colluding with political actors to manipulate the results in favour of certain candidates. The situation has raised doubts about the integrity of the electoral process and the ability of INEC to deliver credible and transparent elections.
