A social cultural group, Atunluse Initiatives, has warned Nigerians against selling their votes in the forthcoming general election, urging them to vote for candidates based on personal attributes.
The Chairman of Atunluse initiatives, Otunba Akinsola Akinbobola, gave the warning in Akure during a meeting with members of the group from all the 18 local government areas of the state.
Akinbobola charged them to examine the character and capacity of the candidates of the various political parties, and vote for candidates that will lead the country to the dreamland.
He admonished members to educate members of the public on the dangers of vote buying.
“We must start thinking of breaking this hardship circle in Nigeria, by doing what is right. Reject their(politicians) money on elections’ day and vote for candidate with credibility and capability to deliver,” he said.
Akinbobola revealed that the group was ready to work with any political party that has people’s oriented programmes in its manifesto.
