Katsina, Bauchi, Kogi bye-elec­tions char­ac­terised by vote buy­ing - Frank

Daily Trust - - POLITICS - By Saawua Terzungwe

A former Deputy Na­tional Pub­lic­ity Sec­re­tary of the APC, Com­rade Timi Frank, has ac­cused the party of vote buy­ing dur­ing the bye-elec­tions held on Satur­day in Katsina, Bauchi and Kogi states.

Frank, in a state­ment yes­ter­day in Abuja, said the act fur­ther ex­posed the des­per­a­tion of the APC to win lo­cal, re­gional, state and na­tional elec­tions at all cost.

He stated that the al­leged “vote buy­ing pol­icy” now adopted by the party would fur­ther weaken the base of the na­tion’s demo­cratic en­ter­prise and re­turn the coun­try to its in­glo­ri­ous past where out­right ma­nip­u­la­tion of the elec­toral process to con­fer un­due ad­van­tage on the rul­ing party held sway.
