Kaduna State 2018 LG Elections: State Government Uses Electronic Voting Machines, First of Its Kind in Nigeria, Second in Africa

Voters in Kaduna State made history as the first electors in Nigeria to use electronic voting on the 12th of May, 2018.

Elections took place on that day in a new format, not used before in Nigeria, to elect Chairmen and Councillors for the 23 Local Government Councils in the state.

This development was first of its kind to happen in Nigeria as Kaduna State became the first sub-national to adopt electronic voting following at least ten countries currently use it. In fact, the election made Kaduna State the second place in Africa to use electronic voting, after Namibia.

This novel action reveals the possibility of merging politics with technology. We therefore, call of the Independent National Electoral Commission to learn from the Kaduna state electoral commission on how it succeeded in making such mix a possibility.

Governor Rochas Okorocha Blasted Over Erection Of Jacob Zuma’s Statue

Currently trending on social media is Rochas Okorocha, governor of Imo state, over a statue erected in honour of President Jacob Zuma of South Africa.

Zuma is on a two-day working visit to Imo state and was conferred with chieftaincy title –Ochiagha di oha mma of Igbo land – and also given the Imo Merit Award – the highest honour in the state, with a street named after him.

However, the issue that is causing controversy now is the giant-sized statue of Zuma in the state. Many are befuddled on why a state which is owing salaries would spend millions of naira on such craft.
