National Consultative Front, NCFront, has welcomed “the decision of the National Assembly to accede to the yearnings and will of the peoples and citizens of Nigeria by adopting the clause that guarantees electronic voting and transmission of election.”

The group disclosed this, yesterday, in a statement signed by Head, Media and Public Affairs Bureau, Dr Tanko Yunusa.

It said: “On October 1, 2021, NCFront held a National Political Summit to mark the 61st anniversary of Nigeria’s independence with the central theme focusing on electoral reforms with emphasis on electronic transmission of electoral results.

“Consequently, a national political coalition on electoral reforms under the leadership of Prof. Attahiru Jega and Dr Olisa Agbakoba was launched to put pressure on the country’s rulers to ensure that the current amendment process on electoral reforms brings about free, credible and transparent elections in 2023.”

“While we continue to look forward to the end of this electoral legislative journey, where the President will assent to the bill and it becomes law, we shall be launching our coordinating committee of the non-partisan political coalition on electoral reforms under the leadership of Prof. Attahiru Jega and Dr Olisa Agbakoba next week at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja. The names of the members of this historic coordinating committee will be released shortly.”
