The Plateau State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has accused the All Progressives Congress (APC) of vote buying in the ongoing by-election for Pengana constituency in Bassa Local Government Area of the state.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is conducting the election as a result of the death of member-elect, Ezekiel Bauda Alon (APC), after he was declared the winner of the March 2019 House of Assembly election in his constituency.
PDP’s Publicity Secretary, John Akans, while speaking on Saturday, alleged that the APC was guilty of vote buying.
He, however, said that he could not establish the exact amount of money being given to the voters for the alleged electoral crime.
He said: “APC wants to win this election at all costs, even when the people have rejected the party in totality; it wants to force itself on the citizens.
“As I speak, they are inducing voters; there is massive vote buying going on.”
In his reaction, Bashir Sati, APC Secretary in the state, debunked the allegation and described it as a “figment of imagination” of the PDP.
Sati said his party had carried out massive sensitisation and mobilisation for the poll, hence, would win it by a wide margin.
