At a press briefing in Abuja, the CDD Director, Idayat Hassan, condemned the efforts by politicians to beg for votes in the Edo state governorship elections today.

The body, in its preliminary report on the election by Hassan, spoke on the Edo elections.

Hassan said reports said that politicians, in an attempt to circumvent the electoral process, used young girls to contact the voters for the trading.

“We saw largely vote-buying in the Edo election, the most worrisome trend in this election is the level of sophistication at which politicians engaged in the anomaly of vote-buying. In some cases, votes were traded for Ankara materials, and cash gifts from N1,000 to N15,000, Spaghetti and other food items,” she said speaking on the edo elections on behalf of the CDD.

She further expressed concern that despite expending time and resources to deploy thousands of law enforcement officials for the election, nothing was done in the face of infractions such as vote-buying.

“The flouting of the rule of physical distancing was the order of the day, there was a complete inability of INEC to maintain her 2-meter rules as written in her guidelines,” Hassan added.
