Hajiya Aisatu Oshiomhole, the mother of former Edo Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, on Tuesday advised Nigerians to ignore politicians who seek votes with money.
She also called for a reduction in the high cost of campaign for elective positions.
Oshiomhole spoke when Edo Deputy Governor, Philip Shaibu, and All Progressives Congress (APC) leaders in Estako West Local Government Area visited her over the death of her son in-law, Malam Momodu Yakubu.
She said that to check corruption “only people with great ideas and integrity should be elected into office”.
“Those who spend so much to get to power will find ways to recoup the funds spent before thinking about development.”
She also called on the electorate to shun the habit of requesting for money before voting for a candidate, saying that such act made them lose the right to demand for accountability.
Hajiya Aisatu congratulated Governor Godwin Obaseki and his deputy on the recent Supreme Court victory and prayed God to give them the wisdom to continue the development of the state.
