In line with AFRI-CIRD’s effort of promoting democracy, particularly through strengthening the electoral process, the Chief Executive Officer AFRI-CIRD (Mohammed Bello) today Wednesday 17th September 2018, was on an indigenous radio programme Aminci Radio Kano State entitled ‘Ankwana Lafiya?’ The programme which lasted for one hour discussed the underlying implications of vote buying and selling, and more specifically the implications for electoral credibility, quality of leadership, non-violence free elections, national security, and national development. It also highlighted on strategic measures of curtailing the increasing trend, particularly through strict adherence INEC to the provisions of Electoral Act 2010 (Sections 124, 126, 129, 130 150(2)as amended), increase collaboration between INEC and grassroots network for more sensitization and awareness creation especially at the grassroots, establishment of ‘Electoral courts’ for immediate trial of offenders, and increased synergy between law enforcement agencies (EFCC, ICPC Police) and INEC towards effective enforcement of electoral laws provisions. More engagements of traditional and religious institutions INEC, while leveraging on their influence for purpose of sensitization and awareness creation on the dangers of vote buying and selling were also part of the recommendations.

1 thought on “AFRI-CIRD Sensitizes the Public on Vote Buying and Selling at Aminci Radio, Kano State

  1. This is a good idea to sanitize and sensitize the citizens on the act of buying people’s mandate through paying for them to vote.
    Good job CEO Bello Muhammad.
