He commended INEC for its efforts at ensuring the credibility of the electoral process and for its stance to transmit results electronically.

The governor, in spite of that, deplored the National Assembly's rejection of electronic transmission of election results.

According to him, the votes of some members of chambers of the parliament against electronic transmission of election results could be interpreted that there was a plan to rig elections.

Okowa congratulated the INEC Chairman for coming out to insist that INEC had the capacity to truly transmit election results.

He said that there was no reason any Nigerian would want to vote for non-transmission of election results.
