Breaking: INEC yet to upload detailed results of 2019 general election six months after

Publishing of results of an election is mandatory on INEC, which has the responsibility for elections across Nigeria except for local government elections.

Section 71 of the Electoral Act states that INEC “shall cause to be posted on its notice board and website a notice showing the candidates at the election and their scores, and the person declared as elected or returned at the election.”

Six months after Nigerians elected new leaders, the electoral commission, INEC, is yet to upload the detailed results of the elections on its website.

Nigeria held presidential and national assembly elections on February 23, while governorship and state assembly elections were conducted on March 9.

As at August 18, however, only the final results of the presidential election (total votes scored by each candidate) had been uploaded by the electoral commission.

Even for the presidential election, details of votes scored in each state or local governments are yet to be uploaded by the commission.
