Post-Election Tribunals and Re-Runs

Wike, Amaechi, Dakuku and Odilli of Rivers.

While I like the fact that the process is been followed and hopefully more legitimacy will come through the judgement outcomes, the cost (financial, disruption in governance, heating up the polity, etc.) is considerable.
At what stage do we also resolve the root and immediate causes of these aborted elections? Systematic issues need to be addressed and consequence should be applied to those responsible for wilfully circumventing the process and carrying out acts of electoral fraud and violence.
That said, we have come a long way from where we restarted in 1999 and confidence is gradually returning to our electoral process.
