Presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) in the 2019 presidential election, Prof. Kingsley Moghalu has resigned from the party.

Moghalu who announced his resignation from the party via his twitter handle, @MoghaluKingsley on Monday, called for reform of the country’s electoral system ahead of the 2023 general election.

The former Central Bank of Nigeria deputy governor, turned politician argued that unless the electoral process is fixed, the country’s democracy will remain weak.

He observed that “without electoral reform which includes electronic voting, our democracy will remain weak. Let’s fix this before 2023. Nigeria today is approaching its moment of reckoning. We need to focus on solving our problems at their root causes. Electoral reform, voter education for an informed electorate, and constitutional restructuring are the real issues”.
