Nigeria In One Minute

‘PDP agent’ in vote-buying in Abuja



Some agents of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) were distributing money to electorates at Polling Unit 001, Pilot Primary School, Bwari Central.

The polling unit, which is also the Registration Area Centre (RAC) of other polling units in the area, had a large turnout of voters.

A party agent with the PDP tag was seen handing out N200 to voters who clustered around him.

He requested the voters to show their PVCs before handing over the money – after which they proceed to vote in favour of the party.

On another side, a female PDP agent addressed as “mama” was seen distributing N500 to voters following the same process as the male agent.
