With 98 per cent teledensity in Nigeria, the Atiku Support Organisation has stated that real-time electronic transmission of election results is 100 per cent assured in Nigeria.
In a statement by Dr. El Mo Victor, the group’s National Publicity Secretary, “With a 98% teledensity rate and over 80% MTN Nigeria 3G broadband coverage, real-time e-transmission of election results is 100% possible.
The Organisation stated that the data from the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, website contradicts the outdated information presented by the NCC head of the technical team to the House of Representatives.
It stated that “the current figure, which the NCC technical team mischievously conceals to mislead Nigerians shows that the teledensity rate in Nigeria as of May 2021 is 98%.”
“For every 100 inhabitants in an area, at least one person is actively connected to a network through a mobile phone or other devices, thus proving the presence of a network service.”
