Is The Use Of BVN A Good Way To Stop Electoral Malpractice?
In Nigeria it has come to the understanding that we use what we get to get what we want in election a lot of people believe that if they don't take anything before going to the polling unit to vote they will not get anything from the politicians as well. Because they believe that they are going there for their pockets and because of what they want to do for the masses.
On this note elections done this day people buy votes and it is not helping matters in the country. The politicians cannot do any road for the masses, the senators does nothing in their districts for the local government area that vote them into the position they are.
Now the politicians have come to understand that the people can change their mind with money. Now apart from the politicians buying vote the so called Voters card is not doing any good too they have found out ways to use it in multiple way. People comes to the polling unit with other dead people cards and vote for just 2000 Naira. Poverty is looming in the Nation the politicians now use that opportunity as well.
I have come to understand that the use of BVN can help cub the issues of multiple vote but not vote buying because it is not easy to control vote buying but it is easy to control multiple vote by a single person there by making one choice or different choice during voting process. The BVN will be the best one to use. No individual can use another person BVN to vote. All fingers are registered on the BVN and the name will also appear. So in that way any one whoes finger does not read on the machine used should just forget about voting. Those whoes finger read are the only votes to count. Filling forms for people whoes fingers cannot read can be used to manipulate multiple votes. So it won't be allowed.
This will help reduce or eradicate the problems of cancellation polling unit.
The machine will used in a way that any person who vote in the machine will be the one to vote using ballot paper.
Please my good people of Nigeria how do you see it can it work? What is your opinion on this?
