Courts should not decide elections – Jonathan

Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s former president, has said the election result has to be determined by ballots and not by courts.

Jonathan stated this while speaking on The Osasu Show Symposium 2020.

He said, the only way to get credible elections in Nigeria and the rest of Africa is by electronic vote.

“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 said.
