Former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, has said that the ballots and not courts should decide the turnout of elections.

The ex-president stated this while speaking on The Osasu Show Symposium 2020.

He said, “For elections to be democratic, that means that the outcome of the elections must depend on the ballot, not any other institution, not even the court.

“If the ballots don’t decide who wins, then we are not practicing democracy.

“And if we are now in a situation where people use force of arms and thugs to win elections, then we can’t say we are practicing democracy.”

He further made it known that electronic voting is the only way to get to credible elections in Nigeria as well as the rest of Africa.
