2023: INEC debunks report of abandoning electronic transmission

Anthony Iwuoma

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has described as untrue reports that it had abandoned  the electronic transmission of results and reverted to manual collation ahead of the 2023 election.

In a statement by its National Commissioner and Chairman of its Information and Voter Education Committee, Mr. Festus Okoye, on Sunday, INEC rubbished the report, describing it as false.

“The Independent National Electoral Commission (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,” the statement read in part.

“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 process for result transmission remains the same as in recent Governorship elections in Ekiti and Osun states.

“There will be no change in all future elections, including the 2023 general elections.”
