2023: How To View Election Results Live | Daily Report Nigeria

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has made provision for Nigerians to watch Saturday’s presidential election results live.

The electoral umpire encouraged Nigerians to make use of the election results portal.

Checks reveal that the INEC Result Viewing portal (IReV) allows citizens to view copies of election results as compiled and recorded at polling units upon the conclusion of voting.

This met the amended Electoral Act, which was signed into law in February 2022 by President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to the INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu said the move was to strengthen the conduct of elections in Nigeria.

He said:

As I have said repeatedly, the commission’s allegiance is to Nigeria. Our loyalty is to Nigerians who want free, fair, credible, and verifiable elections supported by technology, which guarantees transparent accreditation and upload of polling unit results for citizens to view in real-time on election day.”

The electoral body explained that the portal was to ensure transparency in the electoral process and also help to ensure that the will of the people was accurately reflected.

He said:
A transparent election process helps to ensure that the will of the people is accurately reflected. This is why the commission has resolved to use the IReV portal to upload the polling unit results in real-time for the #NigeriaDecides2023 election.”

INEC explained that:

To access the portal, first-time users need to go to where they are required to create an account in very few steps. A code is sent to the user’s email, which they must copy and put in a box. Once the right code is supplied, the account is created. It is important always to use passwords that can be remembered.

“Once the user logs in, they have access to results from previous elections like the Ekiti, Osun, and the FCT Area council election.

“Click on the election of your interest and you select the state, the LGA, the ward, and the polling unit. It is the polling unit results that are uploaded. The idea is you can access and view results from every part of the country depending on the state of your interest. Why I say it is important to create the account now is because we don’t want you to experience difficulty creating an account on election day. However, INEC has told us that the platform has the capacity to manage about 100 million hits on that day.”
