Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) senatorial candidate for Edo North, Alhaji Abubakar Momoh, has accused Vice President Yemi Osibanjo of engaging in vote buying.

Addressing PDP loyalists at Fugar and Jattu yesterday, in continuation of the PDP rally in Edo North, he called on women to reject “the so-called federal government N10,000 Tradermoni.”

According to Momoh, Osibanjo is busy moving round the country giving out N10,000 tradermoni to market women to buy their votes.

Momoh urged the people to use their votes to instal the PDP government in 2019 to enable them enjoy the dividends of democracy which he alleged the APC government has denied them.

Edo PDP chairman, Dan Orbih, said that “the PDP feels the pains of Nigerians” due to the economic crunch, and urged the citizenry to support the move to change the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) leadership in the country.

Orbih added that “the coming election is about liberating Nigerians from the economic hardship and insecurity.

The only way to free Nigerians from the trauma visited on them by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is for them to join other Nigerians to vote the Atiku Abubakar/Peter Obi ticket on February 16, 2019.

Orbih, who reportedly received over 2,000 APC members to the party in Jattu and Fugar, called on them to secure their Permanent Voter’s Cards (PVCs), which he described as the only weapon at their disposal to win the battle against insecurity, unemployment and other challenges.

Meanwhile, the vice president will today deliver the keynote address at the maiden re-union of Class of 1986 from the Faculty of Law, University of Lagos (UNILAG).

Tagged ‘Lagos 2018 Reunion’, the event holds at the Radisson Hotel on Isaac John Street, GRA Ikeja, Lagos.

A statement signed by the interim national publicity secretary of the reunion committee, Mr. Bayo Alabidun, indicates that the occasion will be chaired by the chairman of Juli Pharmacy and president, Nigeria Academy of Pharmacy, Julius Adelusi-Adeluyi.

Alabidun also hinted that a Lifetime Award would be bestowed on the vice president for touching the lives of the members.

He also hinted that the re-union would provide a unique opportunity to their colleagues, lecturers and spouses to celebrate and rub minds.

The Guardian gathered that members will use the opportunity to network and seek ways to improve their alma mater and legal education in Nigeria.
