Electronic transmission of results will check rigging – Oye
NATIONAL Chairman of All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Oye, has said that electronic collation of results will eliminate election to a great extent.
He stated this in Abuja while expressing APGA’s support for inclusion of electronic transmission of election results in the proposed Electoral Act (amendment) Bill, yesterday.
According to Oye, allowing electronic transmission of results will check the usual manipulation and hijack of election results sheets in transit by political thugs.
“Since we are accepting electronic voting, we will also do electronic collation of results. It will help to curb election malpractice and rigging. I think those working against its inclusion in the Electoral Act (amendment) Bill are mischievous. Generality of Nigerians will support electronic transmission of election results and APGA stands by it and supports it hundred percent,” he said.
Also expressing support for electronic transmission of results, National Secretary of APGA and former Minister of Information, Laraban Maku, said that if the country was desirous of enthroning transparency and credibility in our elections, the lawmakers must consider inclusion of electronic collation as very important
According to him, one of the cardinal promises made by President Muhammadu Buhari to Nigerians was to ensure credible and transparent electoral process.
