The Independent National Electoral Commission has said it is not thinking about the electronic transmission of results in the Bayelsa State governorship election.
This information was disclosed during a press conference in Yenagoa, the state capital.
According to the Resident Electoral Commissioner in charge of the state, Mr Monday Udoh, “There is no server in Bayelsa State. Do I have a server here (in INEC office)? So, I don’t have a server to transmit results to.”
He said voting on election day would be done manually and results of the poll cannot be transmitted electronically.
He added that INEC is concentrating on achieving its mandate of “conducting free, fair and credible elections.”
He continued, “We shall not be distracted by agents of fake news and falsehood being peddled about my humble self and INEC in Bayelsa State.”
“Election is a contest of win or lose. We are advising anyone that wins to be magnanimous in victory and the loser to be gallant in defeat.”
