 Progressive Tally Report October 12th, 2017

Cllr. Jerome G. Korkoya

Chairman, National Elections Commission

12 October 2017


  1. Welcome to this press conference and update on the 2017 general elections.


  1. I want to highlight and respond to arising issues including:


  1. Responsibility for the announcement of elections results;
  2. Complaints and appeals;
  3. Official provisional results.


  1. Firstly, let me again thank voters for their patience and the outstanding way they acted on elections day. Also, we have received preliminary statements from many of the international and national elections observers here over the past two days and we are grateful for the sharing of their conclusions and recommendations.


  1. Drawing on these reports and our own findings, the National Elections Commission is pleased to report that everything is on track.


  1. It is important to point out that results published by the National Elections Commission are the only official results. The Commission asks all other organisations to refrain from announcing anything other than the official results released. Candidates and political parties should also be patient and await the official results and not rush to premature conclusions. The Commission is committed to the timely release of the results, but this cannot be done at the expense of accuracy. Please do not report results that are not verified by the Commission. This can lead to problems and expectations that cannot be met. It is important for all to be responsible at this point. This includes the media.


  1. The National Elections Commission also calls on any person or party that has a complaint to use the established legal channels. Our complaints process will investigate thoroughly any complaints and we ask aggrieved parties to submit evidence to support their claims. We also call on all parties to be responsible in any allegations they make.


  1. Having said this, we will now commence the announcement of provisional results from the 10 October 2017 presidential and House of Representative elections.


  1. Let me emphasize that these results are provisional and subject to the announcement of official final results. As results are received from across the country the Commission, in line with its commitment to transparency, will continue to release them.
