Controversial cleric, Sheikh Ahmad Gumi has supported the use of transmitting the results of the elections electronically noting that it will definitely stop some electoral irregularities in Nigeria.

According to the Kaduna-based cleric, the E-transmission of election results would stop money politics, mediocrity, and political blackmailing.

Sheikh Ahmad Gumi shared his thoughts via his Facebook page.

According to Gumi: “Since 1999 when the khaki returned to the barracks, we’ve not heard the better good news for Nigerians as this singular act of making it legal to transmit elections results electronically.

“Nonetheless, this will in no way immeasurable reduce the rigging and votes manipulation, the only way bad politicians have been able to hold the nation for a long time at its jugular veins.

“Money politics, mediocrity, and political blackmailing will all vanish or nearly so by making every vote genuinely counted. This is a big plus for our Senate and the democracy that gives Nigerians free will to choose and repel leaders they so wish.”
