IReV: INEC Uploads 92% Of Election Results

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has now uploaded 161,624 results from 176, 846 polling units, eight days after the presidential and national assembly polls.

The figure represents 92 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 party agents on Monday at the National Collation Centre.

Checks on Sunday revealed that the results of all the polling units were yet to be uploaded on the INEC website.

According to the Commission, BolaTinubu, the candidate for the ruling All Progressives Congress, won 8.8 million votes, while main opposition candidates Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi had 6.9 million and 6.1 million, respectively.
