Frank Nweke Jr, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, on Friday, rehashed the need to shun exchanging votes for paltry sums from political parties.
He gave this charge while engaging residents in Eke Mgbowo, Eke Achi and Okefi Wonder Market in Awgu and Oji River local government areas.
Assuring the people of his unflinching commitment to put them first when elected, he warned that the sale of their votes was equal to giving permission to the buyer to loot public resources and deny them of their basic rights.
“I will not offer you N2000 or N5000 for your PVC. My offer is four years of good governance in exchange for your votes” he declared.
He went further to acknowledge the trust deficit in government, noting that his administration’s mission was to deliver the dividends of democracy and win back their trust.
Nweke, who has been on a market tour across the State, engaged residents in their local dialect, switching from Igbo to Yoruba and Hausa as required to ensure understanding and assure each person of inclusivity.
