The House of Representatives has prohibited the use of electronic for elections in Nigeria. Naija news learnt that the lawmakers took the decision during plenary today at the Lower House of the National Assembly in Abuja.
With nine months to the general elections, they passed the bill for an act to amend the provisions of the Electoral Act, No 6, 2010.
The bill, which is different from that which the President refused to assent to, contains the legalization of the card reader voting system. It also includes the safekeeping of the voters’ register and what happens in the event of a candidate’s death among others.
