Informatio coming in shows that ahead of the tomorrow Saturday’s governorship election in Ekiti State, the state incumbent party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has begun the financial motivation of the electorate with money.
Exclusive video footage received from our colleague, saharareporters on Friday showed how the electorate were being bribed with money at the old Government House, Oke-Ayaba, Ado Ekiti to vote for the candidate of the PDP, Professor Olusola Kolapo Eleka, who is also the current deputy governor of the state. The amount of the money sharing is ranged from N3,000 to N5,000, and were being shared to prospective voters according to their political wards across the state.
High number of supporters were seen in the video footage trooping into the old Government House to collect their own share of the money as the case may be.
“I showed them my Permanent Voters Card (PVC) as an evidence that I am a voter in Ekiti and they gave me my own N3, 000…and I will vote on Saturday no matter the tension in the state,” one registered voter said.
Many of the PDP party leaders were seen inside the Government House doling out the cash as they canvassed support for the PDP ahead of Saturday.
Nevertheless we are not too sure if the All Progressives Congress (APC) who is the PDP’s main challenger and also the national incumbent party have been doing the same. But we however wish to furnish you with any information detail on the political battle ahead of the tomorrow’s election.
