Nigerian Senates Approves Electronic Transmission of Election Result

The Upper Chamber of the National Assembly, The Senate, on Tuesday during the planery, passed the Electoral Act Amendment Bill.
It also gave an approval on electronic transmission of results.

This came after the lawmakers resumed following a three week recess.
Recall that it was a bone of contention whether or not the Senate would reconsider the electoral act amendment bill empowering the Independent National Electoral Commission to determine the best mode of transmission of election results.

The Senate approved four clauses in the electoral act amendment bill.
On July 15, the Senate session turned rowdy over discussions on the electoral act amendment bill.
“The commission may transmit results of elections by electronic means where and when practicable,” the section reads.
