Chief Whip of the Senate and former Governor of Abia State,  Distinguished Senator Orji Uzor Kalu has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to consider holding 2023 general elections same day, saying that it would  reduce cost and rigging
Kalu said Presidential election,  National Assembly,  Governorship, and State House of Assembly elections can be concurrently taken care of on the same day rather than having staggered dates for them
In a statement personally signed by the Chief Whip and issued on Thursday, Kalu said holding 2023 elections the same day will minimize cost, give the electorates the opportunity to vote their genuine choice, and protect their votes.
Kalu also cited United States,  Ghana, and Sierra Leone as countries indulging in same-day election, adding that Nigeria will not be out of place to do the same
The statement partly reads, ” INEC should conduct the 2023 elections same day as staggered elections are unnecessarily expensive.  The conduct of the elections on different days gives room for rigging, thuggery, and several vices. It also puts the lives of the voters and INEC officials in intense danger.
“When elections are conducted on the same day , popular candidates will emerge because everyone will be busy in their polling units and zones  unlike different days.  The cost of running two days elections will also reduced .
“To deepen our democracy,  we need to get the elections right. When leaders with  genuine interests of the people are voted to power,  they provide  exceptional leadership and infrastructure to their people ”  Kalu said
This Newspaper recalls that Kalu, a first time senator  was in June bestowed with the prestigious Senate award for constituency development in recognition of his impressive representation and expedition of massive constituency projects in his Abia North Senatorial zone  at the Senate Press Corps 2021 award ceremony
