Hephzibah Integrated Technologies Ltd, an indigenous firm, has developed an app that it says will eliminate irregularities during and after the voting process. Speaking at a press conference to unveil the new app yesterday in Kaduna, the Managing Director/CEO of the firm, Engineer Clement O. Obomighe explained that the app works with any android or IOS phone.
Obomighe said that they have set up a system that helps to generate report format using a basic smart phone. “Reports produced by observers or party agents can be substantiated with evidence which can serve as forensic evidence in courts,” he said adding that they decided to create definite report format.
“Party agents or observers presence and efforts can be monitored on the app and the app is geo-locationally locked, meaning it cannot be used in another polling unit except the designated polling unit.” He also noted that the degree of freeness and fairness can be determined. “We noticed that in the past, capturing activities during cities was haphazard. This app will make it well-managed, and well-captured according to INEC order,” he said.
