ABAKALIKI – EBONYI State government said it would adopt Electronic Voting System ahead of 2013 local government election in the state.
The government, which sponsored the training of 83 staff of Ebonyi State Independent Electoral Commission, EBSEIC on a three-month Information Communication Training, ICT, noted that ICT was essential to the eradication of electoral disputes during elections.
Governor of the state, Martin Elechi, disclosed this yesterday during the presentation of certificates to Ebonyi State University trainee members and staff of the State Independent Electoral Commission, EBSIEC, in Abakaliki.
He said the importance of e-voting system could not be overemphasized as it would reposition and enhance the electoral system in the state in no small measure.
According to him, the state government will continue to place much premium on the training and
retraining of electoral staff in the state.
