SECOND NATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON MONEY IN ELECTORAL POLITICS 2019
Competitive elections based on multiparty political dispensation have become institutionalized in many African countries. A review of the election calendar for the next two years reveals that a total of 30 African countries will hold elections in the next two years namely 15 countries in 2019 and the same number of countries in 2020. The downside is that electoral politics is increasingly being perceived as a business, and because of this, political parties and candidates have been observed to stake huge sums
of money to get elected.
