The All Progressives Congress is reportedly bribing residents of Lagos state to vote for Babajide Sanwo-Olu, FIJ has reported.
The report revealed that no fewer than two party agents of the party engaged in the act on Sunday at Bariga and Shomolu with N1500 and N2,000 to vote for the party in the gubernatorial and house of assembly elections coming on March 11.
A 32-year-old who benefited from the N2,000 package told FIJ that he didn’t vote for the APC during the presidential election and might yet not cast his ballot at the governorship poll for the party.
“I never voted for the APC in the presidential election,” he said. “That I was given N2,000 doesn’t mean I would vote for the party on Saturday. Everything is just runs.”
Also, a 58-year-old woman, who benefited from the N1,500 bribe, confirmed the fund transfer to FIJ on her mobile phone.
“The APC just credited me with N1,500,” she said. “I voted for them at the presidential and I’ll likely do the same at the gubernatorial this coming Saturday.”
