Headlinenews wishes Nigerians future peaceful elections organisation and voting. We can do it and must make a concerted effort to do this. Party agents & representatives should not be seen. They ought to be at the collation centres if need be. However, the use of digitalisation and modern technology should reduce manual interference. Nigerian voters need a peaceful quiet environment to fulfil their civic duties. Different ethnic groups should register in their geopolitical zones and cast their votes there for peaceful elections henceforth.
