The National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) and former Governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole has traced the origin of vote-buying to the administration of Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
He alleged while appearing on Channels Television programme, Roadmap, that Jonathan churned out a huge amount of money in his bid to secure a second term in office.
He said, “I cannot be chairman of a party and celebrate anything that tends to distort the actual wishes of the electorate.
“But your recollection of history is not complete. If you were to really trace the history of vote buying, it started with Jonathan’s second attempt (second term) with all due respect to him.
