Senator Ali Ndume has said that the issue of Electronic voting is part of an idea hatched by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, to rig the 2023 general elections.
Ndume said this on Friday while reacting to the public outcry on the refusal of the Senate to allow electronic transmission of result .
He said “This electronic voting they are talking about, i think its PDP’s idea to rig the election because they are the ones that have the Yahoo-Yahoo boys, they are the ones that have ‘puppy’.
“These are the people otherwise i don’t see any reason for the cry out on this matter.
“The truth of the matter is that we had 6 elections in this country and the one that was administered under the government of APC was adjudged to be very credible where you saw opposition winning elections under a sitting government. That was not the case during the PDP”.
“If you are thinking is that APC is doing this to take advantage of it, we would have taken advantage of the previous elections that were conducted credibly”.e
It had earlier reportedthat the PDP caucus in the house of reps on Friday, staged a walkout after their argument on adopting Electronic transmission of votes fell through.”
