The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, gubernatorial candidate in the just concluded Kogi state election, Senator Dino Melaye has reportedly seek for refund after sharing #250,000.00 for vote buying in each polling unit but came distance third in the race.
The breakdown of the PDP election expenses in the state showed that N87million was budgeted for “voter’s mobilisation” – a subtle name for vote-buying while N10,000 and N5000 were also voted for each Polling Officer and Assistant Polling Officer respectively in the election.
A sources told SaharaReporters on Thursday that Melaye’s anger was partly because he claimed he was defrauded by a PDP Local Government Chairman, his campaign Director-General among others who failed to “deliver” the election for him.
“Senator Dino Melaye released N250,000 per polling unit for vote buying and he was defrauded by the Local Government chairman of PDP, his campaign DG and others.
“The money was shared for 14 people who gathered in Iyale at Hon Tom Zekeri house,”
“He released N3,510,000 for thugs per polling unit in the name of local security; the money was diverted by a local government Chairman of the party called Alhaji Hussini Ejini. The senator is angry and asking for refund.”
