“I am very pleased with News Coming out of the National Assembly that the senate has caved in to the pressure of Nigeria People and has decided to Allow INEC to conduct elections as it sees fit, which means the inclusion of Electronic Transmission of results”
This was the submission of former Central Bank Deputy Governor and Presidential Candidate, Prof Kingsley Moghalu at the new re-appraisals coming from the National Assembly to re-enact e-transmission of election results after several pressure coming from Nigerians.
The National assembly had Initially rejected the electronic transmission of results where it eventually made a U-turn last week to reconsider the bill and was subsequently given approval.
A former presidential candidate in the 2019 elections dropped the hint when he hosted the candidate of the African Democratic Party, in the Anambra State governorship election scheduled for November 6, Nzeh Akachukwu.
He said the sudden U-turn by the Senate on the electronic transmission of results, was a positive signal that the 2023 general elections would be transparent.
He said, “I believe that in the 2023 elections, the citizens of Nigeria should not allow it to be a contest between two sides of the same coin because there is no difference.
“It should be a battle between the old and the new – between the old Nigerian and the possibilities for a new Nigeria. That is what 2023 should be.
“I am calling on the young people of this country, the youths, to register, vote and colonize the future that rightfully belongs to them.
“This is a massive victory for democracy and I believe that it shows what I have been saying that we cannot all go and sit down and become part of a surrendered brigade.
Speaking on the security situation in Anambra State, he said, “I am extremely concerned about the insecurity in the South-East.
“The primary thing is the security of lives and property. I believe that whatever the government needs to do, that is reasonable to do, I would welcome it.”
