Presidential Election: EFCC Uncovers New Ways Politicians Are Planning to Buy Votes

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC has uncovered new tactics politicians are planning to use to buy votes during Saturday’s presidential election.
Chairman, Abdulrasheed Baw, who spoke on Channels Television on Wednesday, said intelligence at its disposal has shown that some politicians are planning to buy votes in kind rather than with cash.
This is following the scarcity of the new naira notes experienced by Nigerians nationwide.
Bawa advised the electorate to cooperate with the EFCC in its efforts in tackling vote-buying during the Saturday’s polls.
Bawa said that Nigerians should get it right this time by voting into power people with integrity and ethical standards.
“We have intel that a lot of people have bought some items that they want [to use] to buy votes in kind, not in cash. Some of these things are out there,” he stated.
“Politicians are also Nigerians. We too have a way of doing our own things. We have our own experiences in this as well.”
