ABUJA—Ahead of the 2015 general elections, the Nigerian Society of Engineers, NSE, yesterday called on Federal Government to prevail on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to adopt the electronic voting system to stave off the irregularities usually associated with the conventional manual voting.

Addressing the media at the pre-inaugural press briefing as the 29th President of the Society in Abuja, the new NSE President, Mr. Ademola Olorunfemi, said the successful use of e-voting by the NSE, through the partnership with the Nigerian Communication Satellite, NigComSat for the election of its officers in 2012 and 2013, was a clear demonstration of the capacity of Nigerian engineers to evolve a reliable and dependable e-voting technology, which INEC could adopt for 2015 general elections.
