NCC Says It Can Not Guarantee 100% Electronic Transmission Of Election Results.

The Nigerian Communications Commission has said it cannot guarantee total safety for the electronic transmission of results, explaining that no system is completely free from hackers.
 
The Executive Commissioner of the NCC, Adeleke Adewolu told lawmakers at the House of Representatives that while concerns over the electronic transmission of results are genuine, no system can guarantee a one hundred percent shield from hacking.
 
The NCC boss also stated that elections results can only be transmitted by a 3G network, noting that only about fifty percent of the country has 3G coverage.
 
He, however, explained that for areas without such coverage, poll results can be recorded and thereafter uploaded in places where there is a network.
 
Adeleke admitted that this cannot be compared with the real-time upload.
 
The NCC was invited to the House after Federal lawmakers had a rowdy session as debates over the inclusion of electronic transmission of results in the Electoral Act Amendment took centre stage in the chambers on Thursday in Abuja.
