2023: PDP governors seek green light for electronic transmission of results

The Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s Governors Forum and Governor of Sokoto State Aminu Tambuwal has urged the National Assembly to immediately set up its Conference Committee that will harmonise the different versions of the Electoral Act Amendment Bills passed by both Chambers.

Before going on recess, the House of Representatives Committee gave the green light to electronic transmission of results while the Senate did so with preconditions.

In a statement he signed on Tuesday, Mr. Tambuwal said the Forum insists that a further delay in passing and assenting to the Electoral Act Amendment Bill will do grievous and irreparable damage to preparations for the conduct of the 2023 elections in Nigeria.

The statement also requests the National Assembly Conference Committee to throw away the House of Representatives decision that has the effect of forcing all political parties to adopt only one method of conducting primaries.
