Rivers state Governor,  Nyesom Wike has commended the senate for bowing to pressure to allow the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, determine the use of electronic voting and transfer of results.

The governor said the resolution of the upper legislative chamber to allow the electoral umpire transmit election results electronically is a good development for Nigeria and democracy.

Governor Wike stated this in Port Harcourt yesterday, in reaction to the decision of the Senate to rescind its earlier stance against transmission of result electronically.

Speaking on the amendment of the Electoral Act, Governor Wike stated that the issue of direct or indirect primaries should be the exclusive decision of the political parties in the country

The governor also faulted the bill sponsored by the Deputy Senate President seeking for the establishment of two Nigerian Law School campuses in each of the six geopolitical zone.

He stressed that the proposal is not in tandem with current reality, as the existing Nigerian Law School campuses are  grossly underfunded.
