Nigerian megastar, David “Davido” Adeleke has proposed electoral reform in Nigeria with Electronic Voting signed into law.
With the ongoing demands and protest by Nigerian youths for better governance, Davido took to social media on the 17th of October 2020 to express his ideals and ideas for the next 2023 elections. He tweeted:
We need Electronic Voting signed into Law!! End all the Election Violence, Rigging & Vote Buying they use to take power!! Let there be Real Democracy!! Then just Watch how our leaders will start to bend over backwards in our interest knowing we hold the key!! #ElectoralReform
As we have started there is no going back! Let them bring Electronic voting !! The one that can’t be rigged. Then they will know our power as youth!! Sign it into law !!! #ElectoralReform
He further expressed the need for the rule of law to take its full course in Nigeria and he believes that once that happens, our leaders will be more accountable. In his words:
Secondly we need RULE OF LAW!! Let all of them! Every single one of them!! Let them know the law is above every single one of them!! It’s the only way to protect each and every one of us!!
All actions of each and every single Govt official or member of police ! Every senator governor everybody! Let them be afraid of the law! No one is above it! Some of our laws even provide ways we can remove these officials but they are still not afraid!
Davido believes that the problems within the Nigerian system is beyond EndSARS but more about bad governance and bad leadership. In his words:
We need to #ENDBADGOVERNANCE and the only way we can do it! The matter pass just sars or police and this is the only way to make sure we are not in this position again!! We need #ElectoralReform and #RuleofLaw !!
All actions of officials and law enforcement agencies must be STRICTLY ACCORDING TO THE LAW!! It’s the only way to turn Nigeria into a civilized society and not a jungle !! All these audio laws and audio acts. They should follow them!! #RuleofLaw
Davido further advised that the wake-up of Nigerian youths should have a long-term oversight to ensure that the youth takes over power in the forthcoming elections. In his words:
My own now is both #EndSars and we need #ElectoralReform !! Just look at how quickly they are taking action now that we made them feel accountable! And they’ve been on this matter how many years ??!! Haba!!! Thé issue is clear!!
