Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has said the All Progressives Congress(APC) is afraid of the electronic transmission of election results because of its abysmal failure in the past six years.
Okowa, who stated this at a news briefing on Monday.
Okowa, represented by the Commissioner for information, Mr Charles Aniagwu, said those kicking against electronic transmission have plans to hijack and rig elections in 2023.
He said that the electronic transmission of results would guarantee free and fair polls in the country and guard against interception and snatching of ballot boxes.
“Delta representatives in the National Assembly that voted against electronic transmission did so out of their selfish desire and not the aspiration of Deltans.
“APC is scared of electronic transmission of results because of its abysmal failure in the past six years and those kicking against electronic transmission are planning to rig the election,” the governor said.
On the ongoing voters registration exercise by the Independent National Electoral Commission(INEC), Okowa directed all appointees to go back to their communities and mobilise their people to participate in the registration.
