Do you agree with Senator Ben Murray-Bruce that Nigerians should vote via SMS?

Commonsense advocate, Senator  Ben Murray-Bruce  seems to have proffered  solution to the electoral problem of parties buying votes.

He simply wants Nigeria to adopt voting by sms text.

Vote-buying has become a huge talking point after the July 14 Ekiti gubernatorial election was characterised by political parties paying voters to sway their decisions.

Murray-Bruce has taken to his Twitter handle to offer his solution.

He wrote, “There are 100 million phone lines in Nigeria. Almost every Nigerian adult has a phone. All mobile lines are registered by the NCC, which captures names personal details, photos and finger prints of registered owners. Why can’t we vote by text? It will end Ekiti style vote buying.”

The tweet has generated a lot of comments and reactions. See it below:
