It is wrong for courts to decide elections – Goodluck Jonathan

Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria Former President has said that going to court after election is wrong to decide winners in election.

Jonathan reiterated that the outcome of elections must be decided by ballots and not by courts.

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

According to him, electronic voting is the only way to get to credible elections in Nigeria and the rest of Africa.

“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.
