After APC Senators Voted Against Electronic Voting, El-Rufai Says Exercise Possible In Nigeria
Governor Nasir El Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State, says electronic voting is possible in Nigeria, with the right determination.

Recall that the Senate, particularly APC senators had recently voted against electronic voting and transmission of votes ahead of the 2023 election, saying there is inadequate network for the exercise.

According to El-Rufai, the success recorded in the last Local Government election conducted via electronic voting in the state was a demonstration that it was possible across the country.

The governor made the statement in a statewide broadcast on Wednesday to thank the people of the state for giving the All Progressive Congress (APC), victory at the polls.

He explained that the election had placed Kaduna State as the first in Nigeria to use electronic voting and the first subnational in Africa to do so.

“The local government elections of 4th September 2021 further validated the Kaduna State Government’s decision to invest in Electronic Voting Machines to promote electoral integrity and transparency, El Rufai said.

“Kaduna state is proudly upholding a new chapter in elections in Nigeria, using electronic voting technology, championed by a government that is determined to respect the outcome, win or lose,” he posited.

“As governor of Kaduna state, I have always taken the view that we all win when democracy triumphs.”
