In a Recent interview with Vanguard Newspapers, Senator Orji Uzor Kalu agrees that there is network coverage but said the coverage was not enough.

“I have never been against transmission of results, I only said we don’t have adequate coverage where we live, this is the issue”


“We have coverage, but it is not adequate.

‘Like Abia North Senatorial District where I come from, there is no adequate coverage, maybe 43 per cent coverage, so how are we going to do that.

” I believe in electronic transmission, but I want to quickly urge the NCC to deploy their technology to ensure wider coverage; I believe in that process because it is transparent.

” I don’t want to listen to officials who want to buy equipment and make commissions, I am telling myself the truth, if we even have a coverage of 95 per cent it will be okay, but we have below 50 per cent in the entire country.

“I am not talking about my constituency.

” It wasn’t a party decision to vote against e transmission and not a clique decision, it was out of my conscience.

” I can only do what I will do that will benefit all Nigerians,” Kalu said.
