The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) claims that the Kogi State governorship election results would be electronically transmitted from polling units to its server on November 11.
This information was provided at a two-day media roundtable on the Kogi election organised by the Independent Press Centre, IPC in Abuja, according to Prof. Gabriel Longpet, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Kogi.
According to Prof. Longpet, the electronic transmission of the results will help to prevent fraud, rigging, and other abnormalities and ensure that the voting process is transparent and credible.
Longpet urged Koginelectorates to cast their votes because the election will be free of the turbulence that plagued the 2019 governorship election. He also assured them that the issues of insecurity that characterised the election had been properly reviewed and addressed.
“We will undoubtedly transmitted the Kogi election electronically. Numerous violations occur between the polling stations and the collation centre; the transmission of the results via electronic means will unquestionably stop such violations from happening.
“According to the electoral statutes, any results numbers on form EC8A that looked to have been altered cannot be permitted. Results won’t need to be altered, mutilated, or hijacked in the first place if they are sent to the IREV electronically.
The state REC reaffirmed that the Kogi guber election in 2023 “will be by the poll and not by the gun,” adding that the commission will take all necessary steps to ensure that votes are counted and that the victor will be chosen by the majority of voters.
“We only have one message for you, and that message is to go out and exercise your franchise, he said.
