, on Saturday noted that 70% of results from polling units across the Ondo State has been uploaded on the commision’s portal.
The development was disclosed by INEC Senior National Commissioner, Prof Anthonia Simbine, in Akure, the state capital.
Simbine, however stated that the electoral body is conscious that the state has riverine areas, hence causing delay in the input of some results.
When asked when a winner would be announced, the INEC official said, “I don’t think we can say for definite now. We all know that Ondo State is quite large with varying types of terrains including going over the seas.”
“All the results have to come in before we can really say.”
“Right now, polling units’ results have been uploaded. We have about 70 per cent of those units’ results uploaded on the INEC results viewing portal.”
“But nothing can happen. These have to pass through the RA (Registration Area/Ward Level) collation as well as local government collation centres.”
“We are aware particularly in the case of Ilaje that they have not concluded their RA collation and they will be doing that at Igbokoda hopefully tonight.”
“It is doubtful that they will be able to come at all. But hopefully, probably, by mid-day tomorrow (Sunday), everything should be in, plus or minus.”
