    Anambra 2021: Senate Gives INEC Greenlight For Electronic Transmission Of Results

    The Senate has okayed the possibility of electronic transmission of election results for the November 6 Anambra State governorship polls.

    This was revealed by the Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Kabiru Gaya who said the red chamber will not stand in the way of any decision taken by the nation’s electoral umpire to that effect.

    Gaya made the submission when the question was posed to him by newsmen. Answering in the affirmative, the Kano lawmaker observed that INEC had done similar things in the Edo and Ondo elections.

    He added that the technological advancements have even made it possible for citizens to be posting results from polling units on social media while INEC is still computing the official figures.

    He said: “It is left for INEC to decide whether it will transfer the election results in Anambra or not. They have done that in the previous elections in Edo and Ondo states.

    “Even before the INEC started transmitting elections results from polling units, Nigerians have been monitoring results of elections the moments they are being announced at polling stations. By 4 p.m, even before the final results are announced, many Nigerians would have seen them on the internet. Nigerians are fully involved in elections.”

    The Senator further appealed to the people of Anambra to collaborate with INEC and security agencies to deliver a fair, peaceful, and credible election in Anambra.

    “We expect the people of the state to cooperate fully with the electoral body by being law-abiding.

    “The only way to achieve free, fair, and credible election in Anambra is for everybody to eschew violence,” he said.
