Nigerian singer, Paul Okoye of Psquare has questioned the two Nigerian ladies who went viral after allegedly selling their votes during the Ekiti State governorship election.
It would be recalled that the ladies were seen expressing excitement and flaunting the Naira notes they were given at the polling unit. The video attracted a barrage of reactions from Nigerians who outrightly condemned their actions.
Taking to his social media page on Tuesday, Paul Okoye questioned what was left of the money collected by the ladies who sold their votes in Ekiti.
Paul made the inquiry while sharing a photo of them. He captioned it; “Abeg make una help me ask her how much remain after selling her vote for 5k in ekiti election? Miss Kpa Kpo Kpa.”
Recall An Election observer in Ekiti state, Mr. Paul James from YIAGA, has said that people sold their votes during the governorship election for as low as N500.
He told the BBC Hausa Service on Saturday that from March 2022 till date, money and other items were given to people during political occasions.
He said it has now changed as they now go from house to house giving people money.
“What this has shown is that politicians don’t like wasting time campaigning, what they now do is to buy people’s votes,” he said.
He said it was not only one political party that does that, adding that it’s so disheartening that they buy people’s vote for as low as N500.
