2023 General Elections: INEC Publishes In-Depth Report

The announcement came through a press statement from the Commission’s National Commissioner and Chairman of the Information and Voter Education Committee, Sam Olumekun, in Abuja on Friday.

According to Olumekun, the decision to release the report followed its review and approval during the commission’s weekly meeting on Thursday.

He highlighted that the release aligns with INEC’s long-standing practice over the past four electoral cycles, underscoring its dedication to maintaining transparency.

Olumekun detailed that the report, a detailed 526-page analysis divided into 13 chapters and supplemented with 60 tables, 14 boxes, and 10 graphs, provides a thorough review of the election’s critical aspects, accomplishments, and challenges, as well as key takeaways.

He pointed out, “The report reveals the election’s remarkable variety in terms of party representation, marking a significant stride in democratic development.

This election witnessed the election of four political parties in gubernatorial contests, seven in senatorial races, eight in federal constituencies, and nine in state legislatures, showcasing a wide-ranging shift in the country’s political landscape.

Highlighting the crucial role of technological progress, particularly the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS), Olumekun noted its effectiveness in bolstering electoral integrity and minimizing fraudulent activities.

He also addressed concerns regarding the INEC Result Viewing (IReV) portal, clarifying the technical difficulties experienced while uploading the results from polling units during the presidential election.

The report also delves into logistics, security measures, the recruitment and training of staff, initiatives for inclusivity, and the overall electoral framework,” he explained.

Olumekun mentioned that the report is now accessible on the INEC’s website (www.inecnigeria.org) and through its social media channels.

He invited the public to provide feedback on the report to aid in the planning of future electoral reforms and enhancements.
