Bayelsa Polls: INEC to transmit result manually



INEC chairman Prof. Mahmood Yakubu

Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it plans to transmit results of the November 11, 2023 Bayelsa State governorship election manually.

The state INEC resident electoral commissioner (REC) Mr Obo Effanga, stated this in Yenagoa, the state capital yesterday during an interactive section with religious leaders and faith-based organisations.

Effanga said that INEC was ready to conduct free, fair and credible election and only voters accredited by BVAS would be allowed to vote.

“Immediately you are given the ballot paper you can start voting. We are in the fourth week of collection of PVCs and it will end on Oct. 11. Those who have not collected their cards should go to the commission’s office in their local government areas,” he said.

Effanga urged the stakeholders to advise their candidates to be peaceful, adding that “religious leaders should take the message to their congregation and politicians who are also Church members,’’ he said.

He said 16 political parties had fielded candidates for the election.
