Former presidential candidate and chieftain of the African Democratic Party (ADC), Professor Kingsley Moghalu, has expressed worries over the delay in presidential assent to the amended electoral law of Nigeria.
Moghalu re-echoed calls already made to President Buhari to sign the amended electoral law aimed at deepening democracy in the country especially ensuring transparency in the conduct of elections in the country.
DAILY POST reports that the amended electoral law of Nigeria provides for electronic voting and the electronic transmission of results.
According to the former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), in a statement forwarded to DAILY POST which partly said, “His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, let me say to you sir, as a citizen of Nigeria with all due respect, if you fail to sign the amended electoral law with a provision for electronic voting and the electronic transmission of results, you will be an enemy of democracy.
“You declined assent to an amended electoral law in 2018, doubtless because you were a candidate and wanted “scope” to ensure your victory in 2019. In 2023, you will not be a candidate”.
He urged the President to leave a legacy of facilitating a transparent democracy.
According to the Moghalu, “that requires at a minimum, transparent collation and transmission of results and ideally, direct primaries in political parties”.
