Abuja - The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Thursday said it would use the electronic voting system if the electoral law permits it.
The INEC Deputy Director (Publicity), Nick Dazang, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.
He said the commission was not against the use of electronic voting, noting that, the electoral laws prohibits its use.
According to him, Nigeria has similar terrain with India in terms of population which means that electronic voting can work in this country.
NAN recalls that Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) had on Tuesday advised the Federal Government to prevail on INEC to adopt the electronic voting method for the country.
It observed that this method of voting would stave off the irregularities usually associated with the conventional manual voting.
