In the ongoing gubernatorial election in Kogi state where electorates are exercising their franchise, some selected agents suspected to be of the All Progressive Congress were spotted organising voters for a bribe.
The viral video footage by Premium Times on Saturday showed some voters being directed to a classroom where the money is to be given to them in exchange for a vote.
In Polling Unit 001 of RA 08, central Origa, Ileteju/Origa local government area, in an open space, members of the APC saw directing voters to where they receive N1,500 for a vote.
We believe observers of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) finds this video necessary for investigation.
Voters has lamented increased buying, called on authorities to do something.
