The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has alleged that the All Progressives Congress, APC, has started the payment of N100, 000 per vote to electorates in Osun State ahead of the rerun governorship election billed for today.
The party also accused the ruling party of planning to sell the nation’s vote in 2019.
DAILY POST reported that Ademola Adeleke of the PDP led the race in last Saturday’s election with 254,698 votes, 353 votes more than Oyetola.
The margin was, however, less than the 3,498 votes in the polling units where votes were cancelled.
Consequently, the Returning Officer for the election, Professor Joseph Afuape, declared the poll inconclusive.
INEC later announced that the rerun election will be held today in the affected areas.
But the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan, had tweeted Wednesday night:
“Checkout the stories rolling out of Osun…@OfficialAPCNg offers 100k per vote…
“@OfficialAPCNg returns @iyiomisore passport, houses, clears all @officialEFCC cases…
“@OfficialAPCNg offers @iyiomisore humongous sums.
“@OfficialAPCNg will sell this nation for votes in 2019 #Shame.”
