Court Orders INEC To Electronically Transmit Guber, Assembly Election Results

While the All Progressives Congress (APC) was challenging the judgment of the Federal High Court, Lagos which ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to electronically upload the results of Saturday’s governorship and State House of Assembly elections, another Federal High Court in Abuja has mandated the Commission to electronically transmit results of the exercise in accordance with its regulations and guidelines.

Justice Obiora Egwuatu gave the judgment on Friday following a suit filed by the Labour Party, its governorship candidate in Akwa Ibom, Uduakobong Udoh, and 13 state house of assembly candidates for the March 18 elections.

The applicants, in the originating summons dated and filed on March 15 by their lawyer, Moses Usoh-Abia, had sued INEC as the sole defendant.

The summary of the facts of the applicant’s case is that during the conduct of the presidential election on the 25th of February 2023, INEC and its officers failed to paste election results at polling units and to upload scanned election results on the IREV through the BVAS.
