The Social Democratic Party (SDP) presidential candidate, Adewole Adebayo, has said that most members of the National Assembly are vote buyers.
Adebayo stated this in an interview on Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily, adding that even though they passed the law against vote buying, they indulged in it.
He said, “The problem of Nigerians is not that we are sinners, God can forgive us for that, it’s we are hypocrites.
“Majority of people in the National Assembly are vote buyers, even though they are passing laws against vote buying and they are desperately looking for money everywhere to buy vote.
“In SDP there’s no single vote buyer. If you see one, let us know. We will expel him from our political party.
“In Ekiti, if you brought a little money, we would have defeated everybody but with that, we came second according to INEC.
“We know those who did vote buying in Ekiti, we know them by name, there are pictures and videos, INEC also knows.
“In Ekiti, I observed APC was a chief buyer, as they were buying, they were following the voters to say number 5 and sometimes they negotiated with the voters.”
