Over-voting Had Been Defeated; But Vote-Manipulations Are Yet To Be Defeated
With the outcome of the 2023 General Elections,, it can actually be said that “Nigerian Elections are heading somewhere positive.”!!
We are definitely progressing.
At least, starting from the Osun Elections of July 2022, which totally eliminated manual addition of imaginary votes and over-voting at the Polling-units..
And now to the 25th February 2023 and 18th March 2023 General Elections, where the manipulators (the desperate politicians and the indued/biased umpire) seek to manipulate the outcome of the actual votes cast by the various individual parties, but without altering the total number of the votes cast, so that their final results wouldn't have any pointer to Over-voting..
This clearly shows that Over-voting had been totally defeated in our Electoral Processes.. But Vote-Manipulations and Vote-Swapping (after the actual voting had been concludee) is yet to be eliminated.
BUT WE WILL SOON GET THERE..!!
We started this journey from somewhere, and we are heading to somewhere.!!
And we will definitely get there in this lifetime.
Vote-Manipulations, Vote-Swapping, and Wrong-Calculation of votes would soon be defeated too..
Even without the eventual introduction of “FULL ELECTRONIC-VOTING SYSTEM, WITH ONLINE REALTIME REMOTE-VOTING OPTIONS ALSO INCLUDED”..
Then, we would be left with only Pre-Election Issues which include violence, thuggery, inducements, lies, insults and banters, and so on.
