On Wednesday, the Resident Electoral Commissioner for the Independent National Electoral Commission, Mr Monday Udoh, expressed that INEC is not considering transmitting results in the Bayelsa State governorship election electronically.

Mr. Udoh said this as an answer to a question thrown by one of the attendees at the press conference which held in Yenagoa, the state capital.

He explained that he does not have a server in INEC office to transmit results to since the state has no server, adding that voting on election day would be done manually, therefore suggesting that the results of the exercise could not be transmitted electronically.

The REC, after being flanked by his Adamawa and Delta State counterparts, Kazeem Kaigama and Cyril Omorogbe, also stated that INEC would not take lightly those making false allegations against his person and the commission’s state office prior to the election.

He made the statement as a result of allegations made by the state Peoples Democratic Party’s campaign organisation which alleges that he is plotting with the opposition party, All Progressives Congress (APC), to rig the poll.

The REC assured the people that the commission remains focused on achieving its mandate of “conducting free, fair and credible elections.”

“We shall not be distracted by agents of fake news and falsehood being peddled about my humble self and INEC in Bayelsa State,” Mr. Udoh said.

“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,” he concluded.
