Former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has advised INEC to create polling centers in public places such as schools where classrooms will be used for voting to make vote-buying difficult.

Speaking at the public presentation and formal launch of his book, “My Transition Hours”, the former president said that vote buying was gradually replacing other forms of electoral malpractice and has placed the country in bad light.

Jonathan noted that voters’ inducement through engraving of pictures of candidates and political party logos on gift items during elections was another strategy of vote buying.

Former heads of state, Yakubu Gowon, Abdulsalam Abubakar, and former Vice President and Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, amongst others attended the book launch of Jonathan.
