The Nigerian Communications Commission has stated that Nigeria, in its 119,000 voting units, does not have adequate network coverage to allow electronic communication of the results of the elections in light of a stalemate in the House of Representatives’ examination of the Electoral Amendment Act.
The executive commissar, Technical Services, Engineer Ubale Maska said that only around 50% of all polling stations studied in 2018 had a 2G and 3G networks, speaking on behalf of the NCC team during a meeting in the House of Representatives Friday, to gain insight on how election results could be transmitted via electronic means.
He added that the 4G network, which is higher, only exists in areas where there is already a 3G network, therefore making the coverage inadequate.
The NCC was called upon by the House to offer explanations following the controversies that erupted during the consideration of the Bill, which forced the House to adjourn proceedings to Friday.
