FACT-CHECK: Did Only APC Participate in Vote-Buying During Edo Governorship Poll?

CLAIM
A tweet from PDP’s official twitter handle posted a video claiming that APC agents are buying votes at polling units.

FACT
The video posted was posted by many others, and while it does not mention which polling unit and which ward, CDD’s official observers on the ground has observed vote buying happing across multiple wards. There is evidence to show that both parties are guilty of vote buying.

CONCLUSION
The claim by the PDP that only APC is participating in vote-buying at the Edo Governorship election poll is misleading. During the election process, both parties were involved in all forms of vote-trading.
