Buhari: I’m Not Against Diaspora Voting If NASS Supports It by valentineuwakwe(m): 11:14pm On Feb 11
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari ( retd.) , said on Tuesday that he was not against Nigerians in diaspora voting during elections .
However , he noted that the National Assembly was required to pass relevant laws to give legal backing to Diaspora voting.
The President spoke in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, during a meeting with the Executive Committee members of the Nigerian Community in Ethiopia.
The NICE members were led by David Omozuafoh to the meeting , which was organised by the Chairman /Chief Executive Officer, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission , Abike Dabiri- Erewa.

Buhari said , ” I have said it severally that I am not against it ( Diaspora voting) . However , you will need to convince the National Assembly to amend the relevant laws to make Diaspora voting a reality. ”
The Electoral Act has no provision for Diaspora voting, though the Independent National Electoral Commission claimed it has the capacity to conduct elections simultaneously in Nigeria and in the Diaspora .
The State House said in a statement by Buhari’ s media aide, Garba Shehu, that the President also declared at the meeting that his regime was “ fully determined to combat and defeat all acts of criminality, banditry and terrorism in the country ” .
He added that his primary duty remained to secure the lives and property of Nigerians, whether they lived at home or outside the country .

In that case it will be better to travel to the diaspora to vote since thuggery, bullion vans, vote buying, police and army brutality will not be there.
But will election materials get there?

1-Lets start with a well maintained digital database of Nigerians.
2-Lets aim to build a self sustaining economy, negotiate trade deals with other African countries.
3-Strive from being a consuming economy to a producing economy.
4-Separate religion from state, register and tax all religious entities.

This Buhari government that have nothing to show other than excruciating unemployment rate, decayed infrastructure, a worsening governance system, escalated insecurity and unprecedented poverty want to encourage diaspora voting? He should tackle the current problems eating Nigeria's up and put "diaspora voting" on bench....

If you are not as incompetent as the lifeless speaker of those words, you would have asked him to send the Bill to the NASS for debate, not so

If you are not against diaspora voting make the ones we are voting here count. The electoral reforms before you should be reconsidered and sign into law. Leave a better Nigeria for your children. Leave a better Nigeria for everyone. The court should not always be the last deciders of our votes. If the system is credible nobody will go to court after the election. No Police will shoot or be shot. Save Nigeria today.
