Aggrieved Voters Protest Vote Buying In Obaseki’s Polling Unit, Edo
Some aggrieved voters in Edo reportedly protested against vote buying at Emokpae Model Primary on Mission Road where the sitting governor of the state, Godwin Obaseki casted his vote.
A yet-to-be identified woman who spoke with newsmen said she will collect the money and vote for the candidate of her choice.
We learnt that some voters were seen discreetly exchanging their permanent voter cards (PVC) for money with party agents in polling unit 8, ward 2 of Okpon area in Ovia south-west, Benin.
According to report, a yet-to-be identified man wearing a party identification card was seen exchanging N1,000 for an elderly lady’s PVC.
Another dark-skinned man who wore a black t-shirt did the same thing with about three other voters — but discreetly and carefully before he moved away to another direction.
In the same polling unit, it was observed that a child of less than 14 years had a voter card which he exchanged for N1,000.
