2023: INEC clears air on abandoning electronic transmission of result for manual process

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has dismissed reports that it would adopt a manual collation of results during the 2023 general elections.

Reports had emerged that INEC had abandoned the electronic transmission of results and reverted to the manual process ahead of the 2023 election.

However, INEC, in a statement by its National Commissioner and Chairman of its Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, on Sunday, said the report was false.

The statement read in part, “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.

“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.”
