The Independent National Electoral Commission has so far uploaded 66,634 election results from the governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections.
The PUNCH reports that opposition parties and some Nigerians knocked INEC over its failure to upload results immediately on its result viewing portal during the presidential election held on February 25 but the commission explained that technical glitches marred result transmission which many critics refused to accept.
However, a few days to the March 18 elections, INEC said that the technical issues have been rectified and assured that election results would be transmitted immediately.
