Ekiti decides: Keyamo reacts to reports of APC vote-buying


Festus Keyamo, the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has reacted to reports of voting-buying in the ongoing governorship election in Ekiti State.

Keyamo said vote-buying is not synonymous with the All Progressives Congress, APC, alone.

He lamented that the only way an election is deemed credible is when the ruling party loses an election.

The APC is currently the ruling party in Ekiti State.

But, reports had it that an APC agent was reportedly arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, for alleged vote-buying.

The agent was taken into custody at Ola Oluwa Grammar School on Ilawe Road, Ado Ekiti.

Reacting, Keyamo tweeted: “Incidences of vote-buying can’t be synonymous only with the ruling party, but the subtle message the other parties try to pass to the gullible is that only the ruling party engages in illegalities & that the only way an election can be deemed credible is if the ruling party loses.”
