Yul Edochie: Nigerian electorate, not politicians fuel vote-buying

Famous actor Yul Edochie disagrees with comedian Mr Macaroni, who claims that politicians pay money to the populace to obtain their votes and instead holds that the opposite is true.

Famous actor Yul Edochie disagrees with comedian Mr Macaroni, who claims that politicians pay money to the populace to obtain their votes and instead holds that the opposite is true.

Yul suggested that voters are responsible for politicians providing bribes in exchange for votes.

“I used to think it’s the politicians that offer money until I joined politics and ran for office.

“My eyes opened. It’s mainly the people that demand money from the politicians and put them in a tight corner where they must find money by all means to share or fail,” he remarked.

The movie star’s post came just a few hours after Mr Macaroni warned Nigerians not to trade their votes.

To paraphrase the skit maker’s tweet: “Any candidate for public office who offers money in exchange for votes would not serve them when elected.”

He argued these politicians were not crooks and looters but rather investors who would use their time in office to recoup their campaign expenses by stealing from the national purse.
