National Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Olisa Metuh, who made this allegation at a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, said the APC in its attempt to forcefully take over Kogi State, is now flooding the state with corrupt money ostensibly to sway the people and purchase their mandate.
The party stated that the attempt at vote-buying is not only an insult on the people of Kogi State but also a setback to efforts being made towards the conduct of credible elections in Nigeria.
The party said it was only the ruling APC that was fielding candidates who had corruption cases with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
