A youth non-profit group, Kimpact Development Initiative (KDI) has called for the prosecution of those that committed electoral offences during the recent general elections.
The executive director of KDI, Mr. Bukola Idowu, who is also the coordinator of Nigeria Election Violence Report (NEVR) Project, South West hub, made the call in Osogbo, the Osun State capital.
He said cases of violence in the electoral process were disturbing and the impunity displayed by vote traders could destroy the nation’s democracy.
Idowu insisted that every life lost in the 2019 elections in the country must be accounted for and that culprits must face the full wrath of the law to prevent needless killing in future elections. His words: “The Federal Government should consider setting up an electoral offence commission to prosecute and punish electoral offenders swiftly as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has no such capacity as it is now.”
