Not less than 9,403 polling unit results are waiting to be uploaded to the online special election platform created by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for real-time viewing of the 2023 general election results.

The platform, called the INEC Result-Viewing Portal, was introduced by the commission in its effort to reform Nigeria’s electoral process.

Nigeria had 176,846 voting points in the February 25 presidential election. Of that number, only results from 167,443 polling units have been transmitted to the portal. Subtracting the available uploaded number from the expected results on the last check, FIJ found that INEC had 9,403 more to upload.

When FIJ checked the website on Monday morning, it showed that the available results represented 94.68 percent of the total, leaving exactly 5.32 percent unavailable.

INEC conducted the presidential election on February 25, 2023, and it was a contest for 14 candidates.

Rabiu Kwankwaso represented the New Nigeria Peoples Party, Atiku Abubakar represented the Peoples Democratic Party, Bola Tinubu represented the All Progressives Congress, and Peter Obi represented the Labour Party, among others.

Following the final collation of the results in Abuja, Professor Yakubu Mahmood, the commission’s chairman, announced Tinubu, who polled 8,794,726, as the winner of the election.

The announcement has raised a lot of dusts, especially over INEC’s failure to upload results to its portal on time. Some of the candidates have now filed petitions challenging the emergence of Tinubu as president-elect at the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal.
