A new Electoral Act Amendment Bill which provides for total ban of electronic transmission of votes is to be introduced at the Senate next Tuesday.

This draft bill, allows for electronic voting by secret ballot but ruled out electronic transmission of the votes cast at the polling units.

IF THE PEOPLE OF NIGERIA CAN CAST THEIR VOTES ELECTRONICALLY, WE ARE ALSO DEMANDING THAT THOSE SAME VOTES SHOULD BE TRANSMITTED ELECTRONICALLY.

This is the only way the process can be truly OPEN and HONEST without the rigging of votes that has plagued Nigeria for decades.

The proposed piece of legislation is titled “A Bill for an Act to repeal the Electoral Act No 6, 2010 and enact the Electoral Act 2021, to regulate the conduct of Federal, State and Area Councils in the Federal Capital Territory elections, and for related matters”.
