Okonkwo Reveals Why It Is A Criminal Offense For INEC Not To Transfer Results To The INEC Server

The Spokesman of the Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, Kenneth Okonkwo, has insisted that there were a lot of irregularities which were witnessed during the just concluded Nigerian presidential election which was conducted by INEC.

Kenneth Okonkwo stated that according to the Electoral Act, neglecting the BVAS machine during the presidential election is a form of criminal offense. Kenneth Okonkwo disclosed that the section 60, subsection 4 of the electoral act made it clear that the results of the election must be transferred to the INEC server immediately after elections in the polling unit.

Kenneth Okonkwo went on to state that the subsection 6 of the same section of the electoral act made it clear that whomsoever goes against any part of the electoral act has committed a criminal offense. Kenneth Okonkwo explained that since the transfer of the results from the polling units to the INEC server is part of the electoral process, INEC's decision not to upload the results through the BVAS is a crime.

Kenneth Okonkwo went on to say that the electoral act specified that anyone who goes against the provisions set aside for the conduct of an election will either go to jail for six months or pay a fine of N500,000.
