The Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege has come out to defend his stance against electronic transmission of election results.

This is coming after the senator was part of the 52 senators who voted against the practice, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, his stance on the amendment made to Clause 52(3) of the Electoral (Amendments) Bill 2021 is definitely a major gain for Nigeria’s democracy.

He added that the move could be a big annihilating consequence for historical election rigging in our polity.

His words, “It has huge annihilating consequences for historical election rigging in our polity, but we shall not say more for now.”

A statement from his SA added, “He knows that laws once enacted often have far-reaching ramifications, sometimes beyond the lifetime of the legislators who make them.”

“Distinguished Senator Ovie Omo-Agege did not vote against E-Transmission of election results.”

“Rather, the Deputy President of the Senate wisely and courageously voted for an amendment to Clause 52(3) of the Bill (on E-Transmission) to guarantee secure E-Transmission of all election results and uniform application of E-Transmission everywhere in the country, not just some parts of it.”

“In simple terms, The Obarisi of Urhoboland voted to support an amendment that ensures, for example, that INEC does not transmit only election results in Urhobo electronically while other areas may have their results transmitted otherwise and safely.”

“For him, all election results must be treated equally under a uniformly applied standard.”
