Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) is speedily uploading polling unit results from Saturday’s governorship elections in Bayelsa, Imo and Kogi states on to its IReV portal for public view.

IReV portal is an online platform where the Indepdent National Electoral Commission (INEC) uploads real time the photographic copies of the result sheets from various polling units as soon as recording is concluded.

Designated officers of INEC at the various polling units are expected, as soon as recording and signing of the result sheets are completed, to take the photographs of the results documents with the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS) machines and upload them on to IReV with the aid of the same device.

WIthin hours of conclusion of counting in most of the polling units across the three states where the off-cycle governorship election took place on Saturday, well over 70 per cent of the results had been uploaded on to the IReV portal as of the time of our reporter’s visit to the online platform.

The speed with which the results are being uploaded to the IReV portal is in sharp contrast with the almost total collapse of the platform during the 25 February general elections, a development that dealt a huge blow to public perception about the last presidential poll.

Although the Supreme Court last month affirmed the victory of President Bola Tinubu as declared by INEC, it confirmed that the malfunctioning of IReV during the disputed 25 February poll reduced public confidence in the electoral process.

Bayelsa State

As of 11:03pm, the IReV portal indicated that in Bayelsa State, 85.29 per cent of the results had been uploaded, as 1,914 polling unit results had been uploaded out of the 2,242 total polling units.

Imo State

For Imo State, as of 11:18pm, the portal indicated that out of the 4,758 total polling units, 4,287 polling units had been uploaded, representing 90.1 per cent.

Kogi State

For Kogi State, as of 11:20pm, the portal indicated that out of 3,508 polling units, 3,064 polling units had been uploaded, representing 87.34 per cent.
