Rivers, Oyo, Enugu, Delta, Lagos scale 50% results upload to INEC IReV portal
Checks on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Result Viewing (IReV) portal indicate that five out of the 28 states in the country where the governorship and state Assembly elections took place, Saturday, have so far scaled the 50 per cent upload of results from their various polling units.
This is also as it has been reported that INEC has competed the upload of 66,634 results to the IReV portal.
It would be recalled that while speaking as guest of Arise TV interview programme, Friday, on the level of preparedness of the electoral umpire for the election, this Saturday, INEC Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Barrister Festus Okoye, disclosed the modality to be adopted for results submission and collation, which he said will be an improvement on the situation of still disputed February 25.
Barr. Okoye detailed the process which INEC will follow in order to ensure that what occurred during the Presidential poll is avoided.
“The law as of today prescribes a dual mode of either transmission of results or transfer of results,” Okoye said, adding that when polls close at the level of the various units, the Presiding Officer who superintended the polling unit would enter the scores of the various political parties in form EC8A which is the polling unit level result.
“The PO will sign that particular result sheet and stamp it, the PU agent or party agent if available will also countersign and copies will be given to them and the police.
“That original result will be what will be scanned and uploaded to our INEC Result Viewing Portal for public viewing. Not only that, the accreditation data that has arisen from that polling unit will also be uploaded, but the physical result and the BVAS itself will also be taken to the Registration Area Collation centre.”
According to him, the Collation Officer will have the benefit of seeing the original results and the BVAS itself and have the benefit of looking at the accreditation data as transmitted, and the result sheet as transmitted from the polling unit.
“That is the dual mode which the law has prescribed for the commission and that is the mode that we’re going to use for the purpose of this election.”
On real-time IREV delivery on Saturday, Okoye said results would be transmitted as soon as the polls closed from various polling units.
