Parties engage in pre-election day vote buying

Some political parties in Saturday’s governorship poll in Ekiti State have devised means to beat security personnel and offer bribes to some of the electorate with permanent voter cards to influence them to vote for their candidates.

Our correspondent gathered that trusted agents of these parties started distributing cash inside envelopes from house to house on Thursday night and continued with the distribution of cash on Friday morning.

A resident of the Immigration area along Poly Road told our correspondent that a certain political party started going about with a list of some targeted voters with PVCs and distributing N4,000 to each of them.
