The party's national chairman said that the bad elections have continued to hamper Nigeria's development and democracy.
Also, calling on the Independent National Electoral Commission to push for the amendment of the Electoral Act, Secondus said electronic voting will foster the desired change needed in Nigeria.
He also alleged that Nigerians have watched how the electoral body unable to control the military relinquished their responsibility to them and still curiously went ahead to authenticate such fraud.
