Electronic transmission of results can only be transmitted by a 3G network, we can’t guarantee 100% safety – NCC tells lawmakers
July 16, 2021
The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said it cannot guarantee total safety for the electronic transmission of results, explaining that no system is completely free from hackers.
Channels Television reports that the Executive Commissioner (Stakeholder Management) of the NCC, Adeleke Adewolu told lawmakers at the House of Representatives on Friday that while concerns over the electronic transmission of results are genuine, no system can guarantee a 100 percent shield from hacking.
He, however, explained that for areas without such coverage, poll results can be recorded and thereafter uploaded in places where there is a network. But Adeleke admitted that this cannot be compared with the real-time upload.
