 Electoral Amendment Act: Chaos in Senate over electronic transmission of result clause SENATE-1



Nigeria Senate on Thursday went into chaos over section 52(3) that deals with electronic means of transmitting results.

The Committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission chaired by Senator Kabir Gaya had recommended that the Electoral umpire transmit results of elections to avoid rigging, particularly it has been the yearning of Nigerian People.

The proceeding went well until Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi suggested an amendment to the clause.

Sabi said: “I am Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi and I want to propose an amendment to Clause 52(3) read that Electoral electronic means of transmission can take place provided that the Commission may adjudge the network to be adequate enough and be approved by the National Assembly.”

The amendment was immediately put to vote before considering other clauses which Senate President, Dr Ahmad Ibrahim Lawan approved.

Some Senators felt that making network adequacy a condition to transmit election results was a means to manipulate results either.
