 Half of polling units don’t have network for transmission – NCC tells Reps - Electronic transmission of results HOUSE-OF-REPS-1-1200X720-1



The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has told the House of Representatives that about 49 per cent of polling units in Nigeria are without a network.

Ubale Maska, the NCC commissioner of technical, said the commission carried out a survey in 2018 of all the polling units in Nigeria.

Maska and three others represented the NCC Executive Vice Chairman, Umar Danbatta, who was unable to attend the session.

It would be recalled that the consideration of the bill had ended in stalemate due to disagreement on section 52 of the bill.

The Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila directed that the NCC and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) should brief the House on the possibility of electronic transmission of results.

Mr Maska said 40 per cent are with 2G while about 10 per cent are without network at all, noting that only 3G and above can transmit results.

Following the presentation, the House erupted into another rowdy session, as the Deputy Speaker, Idris Wase resumed the consideration of the report.

The House is calm now and the consideration is ongoing.
