Elebute-Halle asked the voters to vote for the best candidate irrespective of the money they receive from political parties.

“I will tell you that so far so good it has been credible,” she said.

“At my polling unit here — ward 10, unit eight — we are aware that APC has started buying votes for the sum of N10,000; PDP are buying for N5,000 and SDP for N3,000.

“We hope that the whole world is watching them. Something about life is that there is nothing hidden that will not be made open.

“We believe in our people that irrespective of whatever they give them; they will still exercise their civic rights and we are expecting a good change.”

Sixteen governorship candidates are currently vying for the top seat in the 16 LGAs of the state.
