PHOTO: PDP Member Sharing Money To Electorates On The Queue Waiting To Vote
An an that clearly violates the provisions of the electoral act, a politician from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as seen in the picture above was sharing money to electorates who are on the queue waiting to vote.
No one knows which state or locality the politician is from, but this shameful act just goes to give credence to the speculations of how politicians buy peoples’ votes in Nigeria.
There are two other deductions that can be made from the photograph. First is the issue of campaigning on the day of election. One can clearly see that the PDP member sharing the money is wearing a t-shirt with party logo and photograph of the candidate boldly displayed, while the man behind also had same t-shirt with a muffler added to his displaying PDP logo and slogan.
The second fact is the issue of those queuing up to vote. Although one cannot conlcude, but it looks more like some of them are clearly underage and are not legally permitted to vote.
These are clearly in violation of the law, but this is Nigeria.
