The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), according to its chairman, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, stated that apart from giving physical copies of results of the 2019 elections to party agents, it will also be announcing the results electronically.
He made the statement when he visited the Executive vice-chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Prof. Umar Danbatta, in Abuja on 30th January 2018.
INEC intends to work hand in hand with the NCC and the telecommunications operators to assist the electoral body in the conduct of the 2019 election.
