2023: E-transmission of election results has come to stay – INEC

?Speaking on Wednesday in Abuja when he hosted a delegation of Media Trust Group on election debate, the INEC boss said going forward, the electoral body would transmit election results electronically.?
?
Media Trust Group is organizing a series of debates for presidential and governorship candidates ahead of the next year’s general elections, dubbed ‘Media Trust Nigeria Election Debate 2023’. ?
?
Yakubu told the delegation that the transmission of elections results from the polling units (PUs) would be a permanent feature in the nation’s electoral processes.?
?
“Yes, it is going to be permanent in all elections conducted by the commission going forward. But I wish to draw your attention to the fact that we did not start the electronic transmission, at least, from the polling units to the IReV Portal, in Anambra or FCT elections.?
?
“It was actually on August 2020 that we deployed that for the Nasarawa Central State Constituency by-election, the first election conducted under COVID-19. So, if you look at the IReV Portal, you could see all the results from 2020 to the Ekiti and Osun governorship elections and all the other by-elections we conducted,” Yakubu said.?
