2023 election: Attahiru Jega calls for electronic transmission of results

Professor Attahiru Jega, former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has demanded for the electronic transmission of election results in the 2023 general elections.

The demand was made by the former INEC boss while speaking at a national political summit in Abuja.

Jega noted that transmission of election results has been one of the key areas in which reckless, unpatriotic, and self-serving politicians have undermined the integrity of the Nigerian electoral process.

The former INEC Boss also expressed worry over citizens’ lack of trust in the electoral process and the poor performances by those elected through the process.

Jega stated that bringing remarkable integrity to the Nigerian electoral process would no doubt require the jettisoning of the traditional obtuse manual transmission of results.

He said;

“Transmission of election results has been one of the key areas in which reckless, unpatriotic, and self-serving politicians have undermined the integrity of the Nigerian electoral process.

“Bringing remarkable integrity to the Nigerian electoral process, therefore, would no doubt require the jettisoning of the traditional obtuse manual transmission of results, and its replacement with using appropriate technology with electronic transmission of results.”
