At a press conference in Akure on Monday, Oke commended both the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security operatives deployed to the State for being fair during the election but regretted that the open and free use of money to purchase votes during the election by the ruling parties remain a sad commentary on the nation's electoral process.
This development, according to him, required the urgent intervention by government if the much publicized anti-corruption agenda of the Federal Government must be meaningful to Nigerians.
"The resultant effect is the debilitating poverty that had made the people so vulnerable. Therefore, trading away dignity in the face of excruciating hunger during electioneering process requires little or no considerations for morals and values that defined us as a people. The open and free use of money to purchase votes, during the election by the ruling parties remains a sad commentary on our electoral process. This requires urgent intervention by government if the much publicized anti-corruption agenda of the Federal Government must have meaning to Nigerians.
