Edo Decides: INEC reacts to plan to rig, replace votes in Edo North




The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reacted to allegations by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is making plans to alter the results of the governorship election in Edo North.
Festus Okoye, INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), that the INEC is following through its processes and procedures for a successful and credible election.
Okoye added that INEC officers were uploading the results on the commission’s Result Viewing Portal in order to ensure fair election.
According to him, “As at 18.49p.m. 702 results have been uploaded in the INEC Result Viewing Portal.
“Our Presiding Officers are uploading Form EC8A which is the Polling Unit Result.
“Presiding Officers must complete Form EC 60E (The People’s Result Sheet), and paste at the polling unit.”
He, however, noted that some officers are facing challenges posed by a poor network in some of our communities and our Registration Area Technical Assistants are working hard at overcoming the challenges.
“The Commission is focused on completing the process. The Commission is not interested in the outcome but focused on the processes and procedures,” Okoye added.
