The Independent National Electoral Commission has so far uploaded 122,275 election results from Saturday’s governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections.
This was an improvement on what happened during the February 25 presidential and National Assembly elections, when it took days before INEC began to upload the results on the INEC result viewing portal.
Although the commission explained that technical glitches marred result transmission during the presidential and National Assembly, the opposition and critics refused to accept the explanation.
A few days to the March 18 governorship and state Assembly elections, INEC had said the technical issues experienced during the February 25 polls had been rectified and assured Nigerians that the results of Saturday’s polls would be transmitted immediately.
Checks by our correspondent on Sunday at 4pm showed that the commission was keeping to its promise as election results were uploaded in 28 states.
The states include Ogun, 4,931 results; Plateau, 4,860; Zamfara, 2,807; Yobe, 2,644; Taraba, 2,506; Sokoto, 3,455; Rivers, 5,388; Oyo, 6,296; Niger, 3,526; Nasarawa, 3,204; Lagos, 11,517 and Kwara, 2,537.
