The nation’s electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) recently introduced a special portal for verifying election results uploaded from various polling stations in real time.
INEC national Commissioner and Chairman of the Committee for information and voter education, Mr. Festus Okoye, made the announcement in a statement on Thursday last week.
Okoye, who also appeared as a guest on the Sunday political program of Channels TV, believes that INEC should be praised for taking another step to ensure transparency in the conduct of elections in the country.
He described the portal as a new step to further strengthen Nigeria’s election management process.
The portal, which was first used in the recently concluded Nasarawa Central Constituency election, would also be deployed in forthcoming governorship polls in Edo and Ondo States.
INEC had fixed September 19 and October 10 for the elections in Edo and Ondo, respectively.
The 10 easy ways to access election results on the portal have been highlighted below:
