#NigeriaDecides: Anxiety as INEC Fails to Upload Presidential Election Results | Daily Report Nigeria

There is anxiety among Nigerians over the failure of the Independent National Electoral Commission to upload results of the presidential election in real time.

Many Nigerians expressed concerns that the development could lead to the results being manipulated overnight.

Yiaga Africa was the first to raise a concern over the INEC’s failure to upload election results on its portal, hours after counting of votes had been counted in some polling units across the country.

Daily Report Nigeria reports that results from the Presidential and National Assembly elections on Saturday had been counted in a number of polling units across the country, and the FCT.

In a tweet made on its official handle @YIAGA, the electoral monitoring group said it was “deeply concerned” that results had yet to be uploaded to the site, noting that voting and counting had ended in several polling units.

It tweeted;

“Update: Yiaga Africa is deeply concerned with the delay in uploading polling unit results for the presidential election on the INEC Election Result Portal. As of 7 pm on election day, no result was uploaded after voting & counting ended in several polling units. #NigeriaDecides2023”.

The group also posted a photo of the INEC website, showing that no result had been uploaded from the 176,846 polling units across the country.

Also, Pat Utomi of the Labour Party has called on INEC to redeem its promise to transmit results for the election real time.

Utomi particularly called on INEC Chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu to avoid Nigerians taking to the streets to protest the development.

He tweeted;

“Just spoke to Labour Party Chairman Abure who fears that the upload failure epidemic may be seen by the youth as attempt to rig a clear Labour landslide across the country.

“He is scared that if they hit the streets Nigeria could burn. I urge Chairman Yakubu to redeem himself.”

When the iRev portal finally recovered from a reported server malfunction, election results uploaded were either blur or difficult to read.
