“There is no electronic balloting in 2019. In other words, there will be no electronic voting in the next general election but technology is already being used in many aspects of the processes.

“Electronic voting should be the ultimate step in the chain involving five inter-related processes,” he said.

The occasion also saw the adoption of the revised 2018 edition of the Nigerian Media Code of election coverage, by media stakeholders across the country.
