INEC schedules study of result in management system review

The Independent National Electoral Commission has said it plans to study its result management system following Nigerians’ complaints about the 2023 general elections.

The commission said its result management system had been a subject of litigation.

The INEC chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, said this during the post-election review meeting with Collation and Returning Officers on Friday in Abuja.

He stated that the commission would assess its strengths and weaknesses so that the result management system could be improved.

Yakubu said, “At the same time, issues have arisen and some Nigerians have raised concerns about result management at the various levels. While some of the issues are subject to litigation and therefore subjudice, we can nevertheless discuss them broadly and most importantly share our experiences on the way forward.

Yakubu said, “More specifically, and from your practical experience in the 2023 General Election, we would like to hear your perspectives on the processes and procedures for Recruitment, training, and posting of Collation and Returning Officers;

“Logistics for movement to and from your places of assignment; the integrity of the collation and declaration procedure, including the application of the law, regulations, and guidelines for result management; The role of technology in result management; Security of Collation/Returning Officers and the collation centers; Conduct of party agents and election observers during collation; and Conduct of security personnel.”
