Court Orders INEC To Transmit Election Results From Polling Units For Lagos On March 11

A High Court in Lagos has mandated the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to transmit results from the polling units (PUs) electronically through the BVAS machines for the next Saturday, March 11 governorship and House of Assembly elections in the state. 

A total of 16 candidates will be contesting the Lagos governorship, with 394 for the 40 House of Assembly.

The suit was filed by LP, its Governorship Candidate in Lagos State Gbadebo Rose-Vivour and 40 House of Assembly flag-bearers.

The commission faces accusations that, contrary to its guidelines, it failed to transmit the results of the February 25 presidential elections to its servers through the BVAS, and this gave room for massive alteration and falsification of PU figures.

The order to INEC came in an Order of Mandamus secured by the Labour Party (LP) and others in Lagos on Friday.

By the ruling, the electoral commission is compelled to follow strictly to its guidelines by:

– Ensuring delivery of voting materials to all PUs in Lagos

– Transmitting all votes immediately counting became completed at the PUs.

Here are the governorship candidates for the state:

Funmilayo Kupokiyi (APM)
