Chairman, Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, Mahmood Yakubu, has said despite divergent opinions about outcome of the 2023 election, overall outlook suggests it is a fair reflection of a complex multi-party democracy.

Yakubu also said, compared to previous elections, it was one of the most meticulously prepared for in recent times.

The INEC boss said this, while addressing Resident Electoral Commissioners at the commission’s headquarters in Abuja.

Yakubu said the Bimodal Voter Accreditation System BVAS technology used in the elections recorded 98 per cent success, compared to the 29.2 per cent seen with Smart Card Readers in 2019.

He noted that elections held in 1,491 constituencies and featured one presidential, 28 governorship, 109 senatorial, 360 federal constituency, and 993 state Assembly seats.
