    2023: Why Lawmakers Are rejecting Electronic Voting?

    2023

    Prof Attahiru Jega, former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, has stated that lawmakers who oppose electronic voting do so for selfish reasons.

    Jega stated in his speech at a lecture titled, ‘Politics, governance, and leadership recruitment in a 21st-century democracy,’ organized by Kwara Visioners Network for Rural Development on Saturday, October 9, that one of the major ways in which the integrity of the electoral process is undermined is in the manual transmission of results from polling units to ward, local, and constituency levels.

    He maintained that the National Assembly’s refusal to allow INEC to transmit election results electronically amounted to a rejection of electronic voting.

    He said:

    The National Assembly, after 2019 elections, promised to review the electoral legal framework which will improve the integrity of the electoral commission.

    “The most important issue that can add value to the integrity of elections they are jettisoning that because of self-interest. We have upscaled the integrity of the Nigerian electoral commission with incremental use of technology.

    “INEC, itself, said it can rarely use it in the 2023 elections. In fact, INEC has used it in some elections in parts of the country. It is a pilot scheme that all the stakeholders have been observing and said is good.”
