The alleged vote buying carried out by political parties in the July 14, 2018 gubernatorial elections in Ekiti state is a preview to what will be seen in the 2019 general elections, says the Cross River chapter chairman of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), Mr. Castro Ezama in an interview, Sunday in Calabar.
Mr. Ezama was speaking on The Dialogue With Agba Jalingo on Hit 95.9 FM, in Calabar monitored by CrossRiverWatch.
He said the practice of ‘money politics’ was the bane of leadership in Nigeria, hence the need to do away with it.
He also argued that reducing the amount of money needed to spend in electioneering by aspirants will give room for more credible candidates to emerge and cautioned the citizenry against accepting any form of gratification to vote as doing so, meant mortgaging their future.
