Candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in the forthcoming November 6 governorship election in Anambra State, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, says he staged a walk-out from the Senate chamber on Thursday due to the attitude of the Senate President, Ahmad Lawan.
Ubah, who represents Anambra South Senatorial District, is one of the 28 senators who abstained from the physical headcount over the electronic transmission of election results.
He stated this on Saturday in a statement titled, ‘Putting the record straight on electronic transmission of election results: My standpoint.’
He said the Senate President frustrated his efforts to raise a point of order over the controversial issue, The PUNCH reports.
He said, “In line with parliamentary practice, I walked out of the Senate chamber in protest to register my displeasure; hence my absence during the voting session.
“Before walking out of the Senate chamber, I didn’t fail to tell the Senate President how disappointed I was by his action. It is my earnest belief that the use of technology in elections can significantly improve the efficiency and transparency of electoral conduct in Nigeria.
