Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Sunday advocated the use of electronic voting in Nigeria to reduce the use of thugs by some “politicians who are hell-bent on grabbing political power”.
Jonathan spoke at the weekend during the Third Synod of the Diocese of Ogbia at St Mark’s Anglican Church, Otakeme, where he berated politicians who promote thuggery and cultism as a means of winning elections in the country.
That is why I have always advocated that for us to move forward as a country, we must use electronic voting where nobody will use thugs to win elections. Immediately we use electronic voting, the issue of thuggery and cultism will drop by at least 50 per cent
Our political activities particularly the use of young people as militiamen and thugs and so on to win elections has increased the security challenges facing our nation.
Some of the youths they use are so protected that even the police cannot arrest them because they are ‘boys’ to powerful politicians who use them during elections
