Electronic transmission of results possible in Nigeria — Atiku Support Organisation


The Atiku Support Organisation says real-time electronic transmission of election results is 100 per cent possible in Nigeria, contrary to the position of the “transparent election-phobic All Progressives Congress-led Senate.”

The group canvassed the argument in a statement on Wednesday by its National Publicity Secretary, Dr. El Mo Victor, and made available to Nigerian NewsDirect.

The statement is titled, “With a 98% teledensity rate and over 80% MTN Nigeria 3G broadband coverage, real-time e-transmission of election results is 100% possible, Atiku Support Organisation tells Senate.”

The group claimed that the data from the National Communications Commission website contradicts the outdated information presented by the NCC head of technical team to the house of representatives.

It stated that, “The current figure, which the NCC technical team mischievously conceals to mislead Nigerians shows that the teledensity rate in Nigeria as of May 2021 is 98%.”

The statement read, “For every 100 inhabitants in an area, at least one person is actively connected to a network through a mobile phone or other devices, thus proving the presence of a network service.

“It may display either of the following alphanumeric characters like 2G [G (GPRS), E (EDGE)], 3G, H, H+, 4G/LTE, etc for accessing the internet. Check the NCC website for more https://www.ncc.gov.ng/statistics-reports/industry-overview#monthly.”
