CSO Gives INEC 20 Days To Provide Complete Presidential Election Results

GovIndex Leadership Empowerment and Development Foundation has asked the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to provide the complete 2003, 2007, 2011, 2015, 2019 and 2023 presidential election results for the 774 local government areas in the country within 20 working days or be prepared to face the consequences.

The group in a letter to INEC dated March 30, 2023 and signed by its Lawyer, Barrister Udoka Oguekwe, made the request under the Freedom of Information, FOI Act pursuant to Section 1(I), (2011).

The letter read in part, “I request a waiver of all fees for this request as this information is in the public interest because it is likely to contribute to public understanding and confidence in the activities of the government in general and the commission in particular.

“If you deny this request, please cite each specific exemption under the law that justifies the refusal to release the information.

“I look forward to your reply within 20 work days.”

The request is coming less than one week after GovIndex Foundation dragged former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, Muslim Akinsanyo (M.C Oluomo), Bayo Onanuga, Reno Omokri and Sam Omatseye to the Department of State Service (DSS) over alleged hate speech capable of instigating violence against Igbos.
