Do you know that INEC Uploaded 82% Of Election Results Four Days After Presidential Poll?

    Four days after the country’s presidential election, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has uploaded 145, 519 results from 176, 846 polling units.

    The number of polling units uploaded by the electoral body represents 82% of all polling unit results.

    The electronic transmission of results was still in progress at the time of filing this report.

    INEV was chastised by political parties, Nigerians, and groups for failing to electronically transmit results to the results viewing portal.

    Mahmood Yakubu, the INEC Chairman, had promised that accreditation figures and results would be transmitted on election day.

    However, the results of all polling units had yet to be uploaded to the INEC website on Wednesday.

    Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was declared the winner of the election by INEC on Wednesday.

    INEC also presented Tinubu with the certificate of return in Abuja.

    According to the INEC Chairman, Yakubu, the former governor of Lagos State, won the election with a total of 8,794,726 votes.

    With 6,984,520 votes, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) came in second, followed by Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) with 6,101,533 votes.
