Nigeria should embrace e-voting in subsequent elections to avoid any form of manipulation and human interference in the nation’s electoral process, Bishop David Oyedepo, President of Living Faith Worldwide Church has told a technology forum held weekend in Ogun State.
Oyedepo says that e-voting would improve the election’s credibility and transparency as well as make the process easier in an address to participants at the second Covenant University Conference on e-Governance held in Ogun State.
The clergyman believes that gaining knowledge of how to adopt e-voting in Nigeria is key to having a hitch-free election.

We shouldn’t spare anything to introduce the e-structure at all levels and with that we will be improving and saving more time and we keep the economy running.’’[/blockquote]
