The Committee for the Defense of Human Rights, CDHR, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to assent to the amendment made by the National Assembly on the Electoral Act, especially the electronic transmission of election results.
National President of the group, Mr. Kehinde Taiga stated this shortly after he was elected CDHR President during the Annual General Conference of the CDHR in Asaba, the Delta State capital.
He said, “We commend the National Assembly members for making a u-turn after the initial crisis where there was a division among members of the Senate. Thumbs up to them for upholding the electronic transmission of election results in the 2023 general election.
“We also call on President Muhammadu Buhari to assent to the amendment, especially the electronic transmission of election results.”
He added that the speedy assent of the President will make it possible for the Independent National Electoral Commission to use the November 6 Anambra election as a litmus test in preparation for the 2023 general elections.
