From Polling Unit to Prison: The fate of any troublesome voter

The Bill for an Act to establish the Nigerian Electoral Offences Commission and the Bill for an Act to establish the Electoral Offences Tribunal were two legislative efforts at sanitizing the electoral space, but like everything meant for the advancement of the Nigerian nation, they never saw the light of day.

The first bill contains a long list of electoral offences touching on several issues that would otherwise have passed as little infractions, but since it has not come to fruition, there are other actions that are viewed as serious infractions with grave legal consequences.
While law-abiding Nigerians would be casting their ballots this Saturday or perhaps staying at home, there are those who may want to be on the other side of the law. Since ignorance is not an excuse in law, it is pertinent to know that there is a thin line between your Polling Unit and the Prisons, or perhaps, a Police Cell.
Here are some of the things you need to know.
-Presenting someone else’s Permanent Voter’s Card, PVC for voting may lead to prosecution. This is in accordance with section 12(b) which provides that “Any person who presents the PVC of another person with an intention to use it to vote, shall not be allowed to vote and may be liable to arrest and prosecution.”
