A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)in Benue State, Dr. Tivilumn Nyitse has called on the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), the federal government and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure the workability of electoral reform to further deepen the nation’s  democracy.

Nyitse who disclosed this in Makurdi at the Friday, lamented that the problem with Nigeria was application of law which in most cases were always twisted in favour of government in power.

He charged the authority of INEC, to train its staff on the usage of card readers to forestall the lapses recorded in 2015 general elections.

According to him, ‘any move at improving our electoral process is welcome but the problem we always have in this country is the application of law”

“The application of law is our problems, operators of card readers should  be trained. Technology should be screwed against outside government. Whatever will improve d electoral process is welcome”.

Speaking on the forthcoming PDP national convention, Nyitse said that the party should work towards producing acceptable leadership that would be all inclusive, while those who may not be elected during the convention, should be able to accept defeat at the end of the day for the growth and development of the party.
