How N100B earmarked By FG For 2023 Elections Might Facilitate E-Transmission Of election results

One of the factors militating against the conduct of elections in Nigeria is inadequate funds, a huge amount of money is often required to conduct an election. The expenses include Printing of election materials sensitive and no sensitive, hiring of Adhoc Staff, transportation, and other logistics.

However, to ensure free and fair elections in 2023, Vanguard reports that President Muhammadu Buhari has earmarked the sum of N100 billion for the conduct of the general elections. This was contained in the revised 2022-2024 Medium Term Expenditure Framework (MTEF) submitted to the House of Representatives. This is commendable because the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC will be able to make early preparations, recall that Independent National Electoral Commission INEC has expressed its readiness to e-transmit election results in the 2023 general elections to ensure that the electoral process is transparent. Arguing that it has adequate structures.

With the reasonable amount of money earmarked by the Federal Government for the conduct of the 2023 elections, INEC will be able to procure the electronic devices that might be needed for the e-transmission of the election results. Mobile networks may be effective because the federal government has approved the 5G mobile policy. The commission will be able to employ and train more staff and this will make the work easier.
