Many Members Of National Assembly Are Vote Buyers – SDP Presidential Candidate

The presidential candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Prince Adewole Adebayo has said that the majority of the members of the 9th National Assembly are guilty of vote buying, IgbereTV reports 

Prince Adebayo made this known on Tuesday, where he decried the current issue plaguing the country’s democracy.

“The problem of Nigeria is not that we are sinners, God can forgive us. But we are hypocrites, God can’t help hypocrites,” he said.

“Majority of the people in the National Assembly are vote buyers, even though they are passing the law against vote buyers and they are desperately looking for money everywhere to buy votes.”

“So it is not difficult to just make us believe that this is an offence that can only be committed by the political class and the same political class is the one passing the law they know they are going to disobey.”

Vote buying has been an issue in Nigeria, with the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor Yakubu Mahmood restating the commission’s commitment to putting checks in place to ensure that the issue of vote buying does not happen in the 2023 elections.

The SDP presidential candidate also said that anybody involved in that act of vote buying would be expelled from their party and assured that his party does not have anyone involved in such activity.

“In the Social Democratic Party, there is not a single vote buyer there. if there is a single vote buyer, let us know we will expel them from our party.”

“So you look at the senatorial candidates, house of assembly candidates, governorship and house of representatives candidates, you can stop vote buying if every political party can say we will expel every candidate who engages in vote buying,” he said
