Former Deputy Governor of Benue State, Alhaji Sule Iyaji has said that voters should accept money which politicians would deploy on election day, saying election has been monetized in Nigeria.
The PDP chieftain lamented that the ruling All Progressives Congress in Kogi State lacked achievements, but was waiting for election period to induce electorates for votes.
He added that the electoral laws have failed to stop money politics, hence, it would be appropriate for anyone who was approached by politicians to collect money and vote his conscience.
Alhaji Sule Iyaji said money which would be offered to voters on election day by the All Progressives Congress in Kogi belonged to the people which the government of the day did not use in developing the state.
In his speech at the rally, the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Engr. Musa Wada promised to introduce policies that would lift the people out of poverty if voted into power.
