Despite not uploading results immediately, 2023 election was transparent — Observer groups

Collins Nnabuife – Abuja

National Observer Group (NOG) has said that despite the Independent National Electoral Commission’s (INEC) failure to upload results electronically, the electoral umpire displayed transparency with the election results.

The NOG said the accreditation and voting process with BVAS worked very well across the country with over 85 percent success rate.

Addressing journalists in Abuja, one of the group leaders, Comrade Safiya Ogoh said without any shred of doubt, INEC conducted a free, fair and credible election.

Ogoh who is the National Coordinator of Patriotic Nigeria Women said “while it is true that INEC didn’t immediately upload the results from polling units on the IReV portal as earlier announced, it is important to state that all political parties through their agents have signed copies of the results”.

She said they deployed 2,000 observers and were present in 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) for the purpose of the election for pre-election, election day and result collation observation.

“The result of the elections as declared by INEC reflect the wish of Nigerians and are in tandem with many non-partisan pre-election forecasts for the leading four Presidential candidates.

“It is noteworthy that INEC has uploaded results from over 160,000 polling units representing 92% of the over 176,000 polling units across the country,” Ogoh noted.
