Senator of the Federal Republic and Commonsense advocate,  Ben Murray-Bruce  has proffered  his solution to the electoral problem of parties buying votes.  –

He wants Nigeria to adopt vote by sms text.

Vote-buying became a huge talking point after the July 14 Ekiti gubernatorial election was characterised by political parties paying voters to sway their decisions.

Murray-Bruce then took to his Twitter handle to offer his solution.

He wrote, “There are 100 million phone lines in Nigeria. Almost every Nigerian adult has a phone. All mobile lines are registered by the NCC, which captures names personal details, photos and finger prints of registered owners. Why can’t we vote by text? It will end Ekiti style vote buying.”
