He wondered why some Nigerians would pack billions of stolen money in their private residences awaiting to use it in rigging elections. Prince Arthur Eze said with the cashless policy in place, disgruntled politicians can no longer use money to truncate the electoral process in the country.
He remarked that “with the policy, unbroken peace and tranquility has returned to our electoral process and true democratic values will now be entrenched in our nascent democratic journey”.
