When one of the party agent of PRP asked the INEC National Chairman, Mahummud Yakubu of the delay in uploading results on IRev portal, Yakubu said the transmitted results were not for the commission to display at the National Collation Centre.

Yakubu said, “the law says we will use transmitted results to resolve discrepancies arising from physical results presented. The law doesn’t say we should call transmitted results.”

Meanwhile, the agent of PDP, Dino Melaye among other agents, faulted some of the results announced.

Melaye kept on shouting at the top of his voice, even when the Chairman asked him to have his seat. The microphone was collected from the former lawmaker but he kept on complaining.

Angered by Melaye’s attitude, Yakubu said, “you are now being disruptive of the process.”

At 1:04pm, the INEC Chairman announced a break of an hour and noted that the sitting would resume at exactly 2pm.
