He said if the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is saying it has the capacity to transmit results electronically anywhere in Nigeria, “what then is the NASS afraid of?”
Fayose warned the NASS not to present itself before Nigerian People as a clog in the wheel of free, fair and credible elections in Nigeria.
He said if the Point of Sale (POS) machine is being used for financial transactions nationwide, an electoral process in which voters will be accredited with card readers and results transmitted electronically is possible.
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) chieftain reminded the NASS that political parties are not INEC appendages.
Fayose said telling parties how to conduct their primary elections amounts to taking over the powers of the parties to run their affairs.
He pointed out the platforms were founded on different ideologies and should conduct their affairs in accordance with their constitutions.

“The NASS members should not allow their personal interest to drag the country democracy into a hitch because if care is not taken.
