IReV: INEC Uploads 90% Election Results


The Independent National Electoral Commission has now uploaded 159,509 results from 176, 846 polling units, seven days after the presidential and national assembly elections.

The figure represents 90 per cent of results from all the polling units.

As of the time of filing this report, the electronic transmission of results was still ongoing.

Nigerians expected that the election results would be uploaded on election day as promised by the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu.

However, INEC came under fire for its failure to upload results to its viewing portal which led to the walkout of some parties’ agents at the National Collation Centre on Monday.
