Stella Oduah, Abdullahi, Other Senators Who Were Embarrassed With Electronic Voting

Nigeria's Senate had a lot on its plate yesterday, Wednesday, as they grappled with the consideration of amendments to the 1999 constitution. But, the whole process was not without drama, as some lawmakers had issues with the use of electronic voting for the process.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki spent 25 minutes putting the lawmakers through – 95 out of 109 lawmakers were present to vote.

As against the traditional voice voting, the lawmakers used the electronic voting method to approve or reject the amendments, which were broken down into 32 bills.

Even after Saraki's guidance, some senators still found it difficult to use the device, leading to a delay in the process.

“For every single bill, the first thing to do is to register before voting,” the senate president said.

But after slotting in their cards, some of the senators failed to register before voting and this disrupted the process.

When it appeared as if the senate president got fed up with teaching adults, he started calling out the names of the lawmakers who appeared not to understand the process.

At the mention of a lawmaker’s name, the chamber would erupt in laughter.

Some of the senators mentioned by Saraki were Stella Oduah, senator representing Anambra north; Atai Usman, representative of Kogi central and Ibrahim Abdullahi, from Sokoto south.
