The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has been tasked with ensuring that it fulfills its commitment to electronically transmit the results of the 2023 general election in accordance with the new electoral law.

This, according to Delta Youth Coalition (DYC), is to avert the anger of Nigerian youth following the country’s 2023 general election.

During an interactive session with reporters in Asaba, DYC President General Chibuzor Agunwa on Tuesday charged over comments by INEC spokesman Festus Okoye that the results of the 2023 election would be manually collected.

The president general said that while the commission claimed that Okoye was misinterpreted in the report, it should not deviate from using electronic transmission of the results before the election.

“We want to reassure Nigerians that the electronic transmission of results has continued and that INEC must ensure the credibility and transparency of the process when citizens monitor the results of the polling unit on the INEC Result Viewing (IReV) portal in real time on Election Day . In the next election there would be no change or deviation.”

DYC chief opined that the committee should also try as much as possible to maintain its integrity in accordance with the new Electoral Law as amended in Sections 60, 62 and 64 as reiterated in the Osun and Ekiti elections to promote free and fair elections and the tendency to prevent electoral malpractice, electoral fraud and violence that Nigerian youth would not tolerate.

The coalition warned all presidential candidates, governor candidates and other political positions of all political parties in the country to ensure that they erase the dream of electoral fraud from their minds as citizens. Nigerian youth will resist this in 2023, even at grassroots level.

“As a group, our mission and vision is to develop a mass movement of youth and women for participatory democracy and to promote good governance. That is the only way to choose credible leaders. We want people in rural areas to know that government belongs to all of us.”
