The Catholic Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, Rev. Felix Ajakaye, urged Nigerians to desist from vote buying and selling ahead of the 2023 general elections.
According to Vanguard, the cleric stated this in his New Year message titled ‘2023: Year of Practical Decision’.
Ajakaye stated that vote buying and selling are crimes against humanity, hence Nigerians must desist from engaging themselves in such acts.
He said, “As individuals and groups, we must never allow the incessant inglorious vote selling and vote buying at this year’s elections.
“We must get back our beloved country, Nigeria, from the few who think they are owners. We, the people, are the original owners”, he added.
