Jailed professor and electoral fraud
Jailed professor and electoral fraud
April 6 2021 ,

A landmark conviction of a professor of soil science, who acted as a returning officer in the 2019 general election, is a symptom of the deep-rooted chicanery scarring elections in Nigeria.

To the delight of legal purists, the Akwa Ibom State High Court II sitting in Ikot-Ekpene sentenced Peter Ogban of the University of Calabar to a 36-month jail term for tampering with the results of the state’s northwest senatorial district in favor of the All Progressives Congress. In Nigeria’s muddy electoral jungle, this is a milestone. To deter crooked politicians, entrench electoral rectitude and integrity in line with global standards, more of such convictions are welcome.
