One of the International observers at the just concluded governorship election in Ekiti State Mrs Virginia Marumoa-Gae, has faulted the conduct of the polls.

Marumoa-Gae of the IRI, USA, said that the election was marred by buying and selling of votes.

As she put it, “Trouble began at 11 am when “see and buy” started and this caused chaos across all the wards and polling units.

“Voters showed their ballot papers to party agents to collect money, thugs disrupted the voting process by shooting, but the police and other attaching security agents did well by establishing their presence at the polling units as stipulated by the constitution. We also noted that the INEC has improved on card readers this time,” she submitted.
