Ballots not court should determine election result - Ex-president Goodluck Jonathan

The former President of Nigeria under the People's Democratic Party(PDP) unveiled that the ballot should be the major factor that will determine who wins an election and not the judiciary.

The former President remarked, on Monday, in Abuja, at a session with Youths and Women under the aegis of “TOS Foundation Youth and Women for Good Governance.”

Dr Goodluck Jonathan said that in a situation where election petitions tribunals reversed the pronouncements of the electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission, on the outcome of an election was unwieldy for the nation democracy.

Ex-President Goodluck suggests that petitioners should never be allowed to take over whosoever the independent electoral body declared winner. He added that if at most the declared winner is found wanting or they are tracing of malpractice to the said winner a call for a fresh election should be granted where the ballot will have to be the factor used to determine who genuinely wins.
