The governor-elect of Ekiti State, Biodun Oyebanji, has faulted the allegation of vote-buying by the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the just concluded governorship election in the state.
He stressed that neither he nor the ruling party was involved in vote-buying as alleged, saying they canvassed for votes from the electorate which lead to their victory at the poll.
Oyebanji stated this on Monday while briefing State House correspondents shortly after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
He insisted that he did not witness any vote-buying in the polling unit where he voted, adding that he won the poll based on his previous performance as the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) in the state.
The APC National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu, who accompanied the governor-elect alongside some governors to meet with the President, also reacted to the allegation against the ruling party.
He affirmed that the allegation of vote-buying was being sponsored by aggrieved persons who lost at the poll.
