Edo State Governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki has commended the effort of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for adopting technology to bring a change to the voting system in the country so it will be difficult to rig election results.
The governor made this disclosur during a meeting with the state’s Transition Committee in Benin.
Speaking further, the governor explained that the people are concerned about the 2023 election while they keep blaming the president for the current state of the nation’s economy.
He said, “INEC itself had also begun its own process of change. They have been worried, scandalised by what happened in Kogi and Bayelsa and were trying to redeem themselves.
“So using technology, they made sure that as soon as you finish voting in the polling unit, that result was uploaded straight into a portal so they can see the pattern which makes it difficult to change results at the collation centers.’’
