Senator representing Anambra north at the national assembly, Stella Oduah has explained why she did not participate in Thursday voting on E-transmission of election result by Independent National Election Commission( INEC).

In a statement on Friday, Oduah said 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.”
