The Nigerian Society of Engineers, NSE, has urged the Independent National Electoral Commissioned INEC, to adopt the use of Automated Teller Machine, ATM cards by electorates to vote in 2023 general elections.
The NSE at the weekend, also demanded that voting should be done one hundred per cent electronic online, since all the ATM cards are connected to Bank Verification Number, BVN, having the electorate’s data.
This was part of the memoranda presented by the Engineers during the zonal public hearing of the Senate Constitution Review Committee held in Kaduna.
The NSE through its Kaduna branch Chairman, Engineer Rachel Serumun, said law backing whistle blowers, with incentives ranging from one per cent to ten per cent of the amount involved, shall be made, thereby encouraging the public to join in anti-corruption fight.
While calling on the Federal Government to relinquish sovereignty over the ownership of television or wireless broadcasting stations, the Engineers advised that the Governing body of the National Broadcasting Commission, NBC, should be independent of Government interference, so as to avoid compromising the broadcasting industry.
