ABSTRACT


This study examines Election and Democracy in Benue State with reference to Logo Local Government Area. This study utilized both primary and secondary sources of data and also adopted Elite theory as its framework of analysis. The findings from this work revealed that,   Political parties in Nigeria continue to undermine democratic system through unwholesome/sharp practices like electoral fraud, malpractices, electoral violence/crises among others. Again, lack of electoral discipline is a serious problem plaguing the democratic process in Nigeria. The study recommends that, there is need to empower the youths so as to make them acquire tangible means of livelihood and hence refrain from thuggery activities as means of livelihood. More so, the ruling party should learn to tolerate the opposition parties and should respect the power of the ballot boxes which decides the fate of any political party that will form the government.
