Former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Attahiru Jega, has denied interest in contesting the 2023 presidential election.
The political scientist also blamed the National Assembly for opposing the use of electronic transmission of results in the country’s electoral process.
Prof Jega, who argued that the electronic transmission of result was cost-effective and easier to deploy, urged the lawmakers to remove legal impediment to actualise its usage.
He faulted the constitutional provision that prohibited the use of technology for electronic voting in Nigeria.
The former INEC boss spoke in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital, during a lecture organised by Kwara Visioners Network for Rural Development.
