Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has ruled out electronic voting in the 2019 polls.

INEC chairman, Professor Mahmood Yakubu, made this known in Abuja, at an International Conference of Election Management Bodies in West and Southern Africa countries.

Yakubu, however, said that INEC will use electronic for the collation and transmission of the results of the polls.

He said, “The brainstorming was to look at the adoption of technology in all the areas of electoral process and how to provide secure platform for the transmission of election results without hindrance.

 “We are to deploy technology within our various legal frameworks within the regions. Election is not just about technology, it is about the confidence of the people in the electoral process.”

The INEC chairman explained that the deployment of technology in the conduct of polls has come to stay.
