Lagos Bye-election: PDP To Pay Voters N5,000 Each -APC Alleges


 The Lagos state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has raised an alarm over the influx of miscreants and political thugs in some areas considered to be its strongholds by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).


The party in a statement by Seye Oladejo, its Publicity Secretary also alleged that it has intelligence reports that the PDP has perfected plans to buy votes by giving electorates the sum of N5,000 each.

Thd statement reads “Our attention has been drawn to certain developments that are capable of disrupting the by-elections for Lagos East Senatorial district and the Lagos State House of Assembly for Kosofe 2 slated for this Saturday”.

 
“The members of APC in the areas where the elections will be conducted have observed the unusual mobilization of hood lums and miscreants from within and outside the state to disrupt the electoral process in polling areas where the PDP will likely return poor results .

“Similarly, arrangements have been concluded to buy votes which negates the provision of the electoral laws. Our intelligence revealed the conclusion to pay the sum of N5,000 per vote to undermine the process.

“Therefore, we are calling on the security agents to be vigilant to arrest any situation that is capable of disrupting the electoral process and INEC to remain impartial and deliver on their responsibility to the nation.

“Our members and supporters are hereby enjoined to protect their votes in the best interest of our nascent democracy.”
