Social and political activist Deji Adeyanju has revealed a new method that the All Progressives Congress, or APC, reportedly intends to use to buy votes and win elections.
Adeyanju made it clear that the APC intends to create a list of electorates and their account numbers and credit them directly at the polling places.
He observed that the party intends to use the fact that the government will not prevent internet banking from being used on election day.
Adeyanju claims that:
The APC has perfected the technique of buying votes to win elections. At Polling Units, they directly credit the written list and account number of voters.
“To preserve the sanity of the nation’s ballots, is it possible to disable internet banking on Election Day?”
On February 25, Nigerians would head to the polling places to vote for their preferred presidential candidate.
Bola Tinubu, the presidential candidate for the APC, Peter Obi, the candidate for the Labour Party, LP, and Atiku Abubakar, the candidate for the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, are the front-runners among those vying to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) naira policy is thought to be aimed at combating vote-buying as the election’s start date nears.
