A Professor of International Law and Jurisprudence, Akin Oyebode, on Tuesday called for constitutional and electoral reforms to accommodate electronic voting and transmission of results.
Oyebode told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that such reforms would strengthen electoral processes in the country.
Oyebode said: “Nigeria is trudging along a steep learning curve as far as elections are concerned despite having a history stretching all the way back to 1922.
“First and foremost, our political actors need to imbibe a true democratic ethos in order to play the game according to the rules.
“Secondly, there is a felt need for reform of our Constitution and electoral laws in order to admit of digitalisation and electronic voting and transmission of results.
“With such reforms, the current rough edges of our electoral process are done away with once and for all time.”
