In the national assembly, we did not vote for electronic transmission of results by INEC–Bamidele

Senator Opeyemi Bamidele, who represents Ekiti Central Senatorial District, has claimed that the amended electoral law does not mandate the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to transmit election results to the IReV. He alleges that some politicians are being disingenuous about the interpretation of the provision.

According to Senator Bamidele, the purpose of the amended electoral law is to streamline the voting process by INEC. He explains that the BVAS technology is the reason behind the approval of the electoral law, as it enables voters to be accredited and cast their votes quickly. He emphasizes that the transmission of results was not a feature of the electoral law that was passed.

The Senator goes on to say that the national assembly did not vote for electronic transmission of results by INEC. He believes that some people are being misleading by claiming that the law requires the transmission of results. He clarifies that the transmission of results only occurs when there is no intermediary between the voter and the INEC portal. The BVAS technology was designed for accreditation, not voting, and there is a difference between the IReV and BVAS.
