The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, claimed that the November 11 governorship election in Kogi State will be transmitted from polling units directly to its server.

Prof. Gabriel Longpet, the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Kogi stated this at a two-day media roundtable Engagement on the Kogi election Organized by the Independent Press Center, IPC in Abuja.

Longpet assured that the issues of insecurity that characterised the 2019 governorship election have been critically analysed and dealt with, adding that the electronic transmission of the results will help to eliminate electoral fraud and rigging.

He said: “Of course, we will be transmitting the Kogi election electronically. A lot of infractions do happen between the polling units and the collation centre; the transmission of the results through electronic methods will definitely prevent such issues of infractions from occurring.

“By the electoral acts, any results figures on form EC8A that appeared mutilated cannot be allowed. If results are transmitted electronically to the IREV, there will be no need for results to be hijacked in the first place, mutilated or changed.”

Prof. Longpet reiterated that the 2023 governorship poll in Kogi, ‘‘will be by the poll and not by the gun”, assuring that the commission will do everything to ensure that votes count and that those who will emerge will emerge through popular votes.

“We have only one message and the message is that you come out to exercise your franchise”.
