Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, is of the view that the incidence of vote-buying in the just concluded governorship election in Ekiti State is not solely synonymous to the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to him, the report of vote buying and selling were passed across by the opposition parties with the intention for the ruling party to lose the election.

However, the APC's candidate, Biodun Oyebanji won the Ekiti governorship election.

Keyamo said;

“Incidences of vote-buying can’t be synonymous only with the ruling party, but the subtle message the other parties try to pass to the gullible is that only the ruling party engages in illegalities & that the only way an election can be deemed credible is if the ruling party loses.”
