President Buhari on Tuesday, said the 2019 general elections will cost the country about 242.4 billion Naira.

He sent a letter to the National Assembly to seek the approval of the sum which will be drawn from the 2018 and 2019 budgets. In the letter, he explained that implementing a budget of 9.12 trillion Naira in 2018 will be extremely challenging and did not consider it convenient.

Buhari, therefore, urged the lawmakers to transfer the funds appropriated for the new projects which were inserted in the 2018 budget to cover the sum of 228.8 billion Naira for the elections while the balance will be provided in the 2019 budget.

Presidential type of democracy is very expensive. Nigeria should revert to the modified open ballot system to save money
