Breaking: INEC toTransmit 2023 Election Votes Electronically According Senate

The Nigerian 9th Senate national assembly on Tuesday passed a bill to stop its decision which subjected the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC) to seek approval from the Nigerian Communications Commission before it could transmit elections results electronically. By this bill, it means that INEC would transmit 2023 election vote electronically.

Earlier in July, during consideration of a report on 2010 Electoral Act ( Amendment ) Bill 2021 submitted by its Committee on INEC, amended clause 52(3) as recommended. While the clause as presented by the committee in the report says INEC can transmit election results electronically where and when practicable, the Senate passed the amended version which says “INEC can transmit election results electronically subject to confirmation of the NCC based on adequacy and security of National Network.

However,  Sub section (2) of the bill amendment now reads, “Subject to section 63 of this Bill, voting at an election and transmission of results under this Bill shall be in accordance with the procedure determined by the Commission, (INEC) which may include electronic voting.
