INEC Chairman Why We Always Change Colour Of Result Sheets During Elections

The Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, has revealed why the commission changes result in bed covers during elections.


Yakubu spoke in Abuja on Friday, at the stakeholders’ Conference On Election Results Management and the Launch of the Election Result Analysis Dashboard (ERAD) of Yiaga Africa.

As a measure to reinforce the 2023 elections, Yiaga Africa came up with the ERAD initiative.


Remarking on this, the INEC Chairman commended the Civil Society Organisation, saying INEC is prepared to team up on making the project work.

He additionally talked about how the dashboard assisted with enhancing INEC’s work during the last governorship political election in Osun State.

“The visibility that ERAD gave to the INEC Result Viewing (IReV) portal has been momentous, and it is deeply appreciated by INEC. I hope the Dashboard is sustained and INEC remains ready to work with you to improve on it.”


“Apart from voting, results management is easily the most critical aspect of election administration. Indeed, for most politicians, it is perhaps more important than voting…  We constantly change result sheet color because politicians like to produce their own result during the election.”


The event is ongoing at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja.
