To bolster transparency and efficiency in Nigeria’s electoral process, the Senate Committee on Electoral Matters has revealed groundbreaking proposals to reshape the nation’s voting procedures.

The committee, led by Senator Sharafadeen Alli, disclosed plans to make it compulsory for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to upload election results online.

Senator Alli made this known in an interview with Channels Television on Tuesday, November 21, 2023.

Currently, the law does not mandate this action, but the committee is actively working on amending legislation to enforce this critical step.

Senator Alli emphasized, “Under the current law, INEC doesn’t need to upload results; that is what the court has said. But as we are going forward, it is going to be mandatory.”

In addition to the mandate for online result uploading, the committee has put forward a comprehensive package of electoral reforms.
