Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Wednesday asked the national assembly to adopt electronic transmission of results in the electoral act amendment bill.

Delivering a lecture on Wednesday at the inauguration ceremony/lecture of the National Defence College (NDC), Course 30, in Abuja, he said the adoption of electronic transmission of results will improve transparency in the electoral process.

“Where there is no confidence in the electoral umpire, people resort to the crisis. But unfortunately, sometimes when the results come out, the damage would have been done.

“I urge the national assembly while looking at the law; they should allow the use electronic means of transmitting results for the sake of transparency as well as avoiding electoral crisis,” he said.
