APC Senators Reject Electronic Transmission Of Election Results
The original 52(3) as contained in the report under consideration read: “The Commission may transmit results of elections by electronic means where and when practicable.”

BY SAHARAREPORTERS, NEW YORKJUL 15, 2021

Senators affiliated with the ruling All Progressives Congress, on Thursday, voted against the electronic transmission of results.



The original 52(3) as contained in the report under consideration read: “The Commission may transmit results of elections by electronic means where and when practicable.”


But an APC senator from Niger North, Sabi Abdullahi, amended the clause to read, “INEC may consider electronic collation of results, provided the national network coverage is adjudged to be adequate and secured by the Nigerian Communications Commission and approved by the National Assembly.”


Senate President, Ibrahim Lawan, ruled in favor of the amendment when he conducted a voice vote.


There was a disagreement and the Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe, called for a division that would require individual voting on the floor.


Lawan sustained Abaribe’s point of order and called for a division.


At the end of the poll, 88 senators voted, while 28 were not available to vote.


The outcome of the election showed that 52 APC senators, including the chairman of the Senate INEC committee, Kabiru Gaya, voted against the panel’s report, which gives the electoral umpire the sole power to determine the practicability of electronic transmission of results.


The Peoples Democratic Party members on the floor all voted in favor of electronic transmission of results by INEC without interference from either the NCC or the National Assembly.


The APC members, while casting their votes against the amendment, attributed their decision to the claim of the NCC that only 43 percent of the country has network coverage.


According to what they voted for, NCC and the National Assembly will take over the work of INEC by transmitting the results against the backdrop that INEC cannot carry out the electronic transmission of results unless the NCC and the National Assembly approved.

Those that are opposing it now are doing so because they are in the ruling party, but what they have forgotten is that tomorrow they might be in the opposing party. Because it didn't favour you today does not mean that it will not be so tomorrow. Nigerian politicians na wa

The media is being mischievous.the report is highly misleading.apc did not oppose the passage,they only inserted a clause which allows only full transmission if ncc gives a go ahead.according to ncc,only 43% of nigeria has network coverage so how can full transmission of results be achieved?

How did your loved ones received the funds you send across to them?

How did you pass messages across to them when you need to? Don't tell me you travel down just to deliver a message like inec have proposed to do.

Haven't you heard the word (proxy, interface) base station and it's functions in telecommunications?

Do not rush to counter when you're not well equipped. Okay!

There is a particular hill in my villa where network reaches occasionally.but the nearest mast is at the lg headquarters which is 17 kilometers away.I hardly call the village,they do the calling.when I send SMS,the shortest time it takes to deliver is 36 hours.

A walkout has been staged by opposition.
