Political elections in Nigeria are mostly believed to never be free and fair and it’s seems like the believe is now valid when ex Deputy Senate President, Ibrahim Mantu confirmed he rigged elections in the past for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
Ibrahim Mantu made this revelation during an interview on Channels Television. He mentioned he helped the party rig elections before. When asked to elaborate, he said he offered bribe to electoral officials and security agents during elections.
“Let me tell you one thing, yes I did. I am now confessing the truth. I don’t have to go and change election (results) but when you provide money, you give money to INEC boys that if they see any chance they should favour you, you provide money to the security personnel. I tell you it’s not necessarily when I am contesting election but when my party sponsors a candidate, I will like that candidate to win” he said
