It said some bureau de change (BDC) operators within the state have “witnessed an upsurge in the number of customers calling to change USD1000 to Naira.”


CDD said, “There are indications that a lot of money has been set aside for vote buying on Saturday. Already, our observers have noted the distribution of gift items such as ankara textile materials and rice in Lokoja and Koton Karfe local government area.

“The use of financial inducement to subvert the credibility of the electoral process is antithetical to the democratic ethos.

“CDD condemns in the strongest possible terms all forms of inducement of poll officials. The Electoral Act 2010 (as amended) expressly frowns at bribery and all forms of inducement of poll officials.
