A civil society organization, the Conscience for Human Rights and Conflict Resolution (CHRCR) has raised concerns over the failure of Kogi State Independent Electoral Commission (KOSIEC) to release breakdown of results 90 days after conducting local government elections.

In a statement signed by the executive director, Comrade Idris Miliki Abdul, CHRCR decried the delay despite huge budgetary allocation for the commission in the state 2020 appropriation bill.

Miliki pointed out that timely release of election result is for purpose of record, accountability, research and documentation.

He also lamented that ad-hoc staff deployed for the December 2020 local government elections have not been paid.

“Despite colossal amount claim to have been spent on that kangaroo elections in a digital age by the state government, SIEC in the state is yet to release the results to the public.

“From investigation carried out and the complaints received by CHRCR, many of those engaged during the elections are yet to be paid their entitlements. This is corruption,” he said.

CHRCR called on KOSIEC and the state government to release the complete data of the local government council elections conducted on the 12 December 2020 without further delay.
