The People’s Democratic Party (PDP)has said that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has no excuse to use the electronic direct transmission of results in 2023 general elections and other future polls.
This came after INEC’s announcement of its readiness to conduct online (electronic) registration of voters for future elections in the country.
Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary disclosed this in a statement on Tuesday.
The party said that since INEC is in the position to deploy technology to conduct online registration of voters, it can also conduct an electronic transmission of results directly from the polling unit to its central server.
The PDP, however, urged the electoral umpire to ensure that the online registration of voters is credible, transparent, and not open to the manipulations of desperate politicians, particularly in the All Progressives Congress (APC).
