Nigerian senators including wife of the National leader of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Remi Tinubu, Opeyemi Bamidele and Smart Adeyemi on Thursday voted against electronic transmission of election results in the Electoral Amendment Bill.
Senators from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, with the exception of Senator Robert Ajayi Boroffice, all voted against the clause of the bill which sought to promote electoral credibility and reduce electoral malpractices.
Mrs Tinubu is the wife of former Lagos governor, Bola Tinubu, who is angling to become Nigeria’s president in 2023.
Messrs Bamidele and Adeyemi owe their ascendancy in politics to their antecedents activism and campaign for democracy in Nigeria.
Their actions in hampering the credibility of future Nigerian elections could have a telling impact on the advancement of democracy.
With 52 votes, the APC-dominated transferred the power to determine the suitability of electronic transmission of election results to the Nigerian Communication Commission.
The National Assembly would also have a say in that process.
While 28 senators voted for the electronic transmission, 28 senators were absent during the voting.
