Shehu Sani, a former senator who served as the 8th National Assembly’s Kaduna Central Senatorial District’s representative, has disclosed new strategies used by vote buys in advance of the country’s February 25 presidential election.
Nigeria’s Central Bank (CBN) recently introduced a currency policy that has reduced the availability of naira notes around the nation. The change is anticipated to put a stop to vote-buying tactics in the future general elections in 2023.
On the other hand, Senator Sani asserted in a post on his verified Twitter page on Tuesday that vote buyers have changed from providing voters with cash to collecting their account numbers in order to make direct financial transfers because they are unable to access the sizeable amounts of cash needed.
“Vote buyers have resorted to collecting the account numbers of the electorates. There is also sharing palliatives in return for votes,” the former lawmaker tweeted.
