Jeta Attahiru Jega, former chairman of the Independent National Election Commission (INEC), called for a review of existing legislation to further deepen democracy in Nigeria.

Jega on Tuesday called for a paper phone announced at the 1st National Democratic Day Anti-Corruption Summit in Abuja.

A paper entitled "Restraining Election Spending and Recruitment of Voters in Nigeria: The Role of Regulators and Law Enforcement Agencies".

In his recommendation, Jega stated that more attention should be paid to strengthening the campaign's finances and legitimizing vote purchases.

"The purpose of the campaign is to put restrictions on the purpose of the campaign and general political spending, and to impose strict penalties for non-compliance," he said.

He said that corporate contributions to political parties and candidates should be prohibited.

Other recommendations made by Jega included strengthening the capabilities and relative independence of security and anti-corruption agencies as well as INEC.

"This is to monitor political actors and strengthen compliance with the legal requirements of election funding and voting in the Constitution and the Election Act," he said.

He further stated that the integrity of the election is key to Nigeria's democratic and socio-economic development.

"To protect and protect the integrity of the country's elections, we all need to work together," said Jega.

Similarly, the former president of the Sarayoa Appeal Court, who spoke of "the use of public funds in the election suit and justice integrity," said President Muhammad Buhari's administration had shown clear character, commitment and sincerity. Fight against corruption.

Mr. Salami said,

"This clearly reveals the hot nature of the election contest in Nigeria.

"Even though our laws prescribe the resolution of disputes arising from the electoral process through the courts, surprisingly many petitions in court have left much to be desired.

"This development calls for a review of our election process."
