Ahead of the next elections in 2023, Nigerians have been cautioned against selling their votes and any kind of electoral fraud.
Nigerian have been warned against trading their future for bags of salt and loaf of bread.
The announcement was made to the public by Moses Paul, the Assistant National Youth Leader and the Convener of World Teacher’ s Day, and issued a warning about this issue.
According to his statement, Paul advised Nigerians and teachers to shun any violent activities before, during, and after the elections in 2023.
He also called on Nigerians to vote for Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), claiming that he is the best for Nigerians than any other candidate.
The statement reads: ” Vote buying has become a disturbing feature in Nigeria’ s democratic process. Buying and selling of votes have heightened the monetization of the electoral process whereby the highest bidder gets the most votes.
” Vote- buying corrupts the electoral process and throws up the wrong candidates at the expense of good politicians. When wrong candidates emerge as winners, the country suffers. It is a criminal offense that affects the sanctity and credibility of the electoral process.
