Massive vote buying has been widely reported in the ongoing Osun state gubernatorial election, according to two well-known sociopolitical activists in Nigeria.
According to Shehu Sani, a former senator from Kaduna Central, some Osun State people are allegedly demanding money before casting their ballots.
However, he cautioned that wealth would thwart the rise of a capable leader.
“The Osun residents reportedly demanded money before voting. Money is the temptation that will stand in between the electorates and their dream of a good leadership and a better country,” Sani said.
Similarly, Deji Adeyanju asserted vote buying in the majority of the state’s polling units.
“Massive vote buying ongoing in most PUs in Osun. #OsunDecides2022.
“ILE IFE RIGGING BEGINS: They are beating People perceived to be PDP supporters and not allowing them to vote at Ok 3, Unit 14, Ogbon Oya in Ile Ife as I predicted yesterday,” Adeyanju tweeted.
