2019 elections: INEC to collate, transmit results manually

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has confirmed that results of the forthcoming elections will be collated and transmitted manually.

INEC’s National Commissioner and Chairman of Information and Voter Education, Festus Okoye, stated this yesterday, during a media interactive session.

Okoye explained that the inability of the commission to adopt electronic transmission, was because of the non-amendment of the electoral laws.

“We are ready for electronic transmission any day the law is amended. For now, we are collating and transmitting manually in accordance with the law,” he said.
Okoye also challenged anybody with information that PVCs were handed over to religious leaders or any other person for distribution by INEC in any state, to come up with evidence.
He added that INEC was prepared to deliver a free, fair and credible election and warned that the body will come hard on ad-hoc staff, who collects financial inducements from any source in other to compromise the election.
“We are ready for a free, fair and credible election, but, parties and politicians must also show they are ready for the election,” Okoye added.
