The credibility of a country’s leadership is always linked to the electoral management body. The electoral management should be able to conduct elections which will not take lives of electorates, where the vote of every verified electorate counts and also provides receipt for the election to serve as proof that the process was transparent and credible.
This background forms the basis of the WeVote platform a product from Blue House Technology. The basis of this product is developing a platform which will pilot in tertiary institutions, enabling students in tertiary institutions participate in election exercises irrespective of their location with convenience and total privacy cutting across various operating system platforms. The goal is to test this model first in tertiary institutions and then mainstream into the Nigerian electoral system.
The product is currently being championed by a dynamic team of enthusiastic youths and they’ve thus far gained credible institutional, media and off-media support. With the launching of their crowdfunding campaign late February, they were able to raise $1500 from supporters to kick-start the project.
Looking at the big picture, the prospect for this team are high. With the a target for full nationwide delpoyable capacity by 2019 and the recent support of elcetronic voting in Nigeria by the Legislature, it can be well said that they are on their way to achieving their goals.
We wish them all the best.
