Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo has stated that reports of voting-buying in the Ekiti State governorship election are not solely associated with their ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

In response to reports of mass vote buying and selling in the Ekiti governorship election, which the ruling party’s candidate, Biodun Oyebanji, won, the minister stated that the claims are only subtle messages sent by opposition parties in order to ensure that the ruling party loses the election.

Keyamo said;

“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.”
