Senator representing Anambra north, Stella Oduah has revealed that she abstained from voting on the electronic transmission of election results because she didn’t want to reject the work she was part of.
Oduah, a member of the committee on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), was among 27 senators who were absent when voting was held.
In a terse statement on Friday, Oduah stated that she abstained from the voting by walking out of the red chamber because it would be “unjust” if she rejects her committee’s work.
“We took time to arrive at that decision at the committee meeting and coming to plenary to reject it will be unjust, that was why I walked out,” the senator said.
“In as much as number is a very significant decider in parliament, we should also take decisions having future projection and nation development in mind.”
