There’s often something about knowing the level of decadence in Nigerian politics and seeing it displayed in real-time that breaks the heart of many.
Indeed, it’s no news that bribery and voting buying are the order of the day in Nigerian politics. But, one trending video of a party delegate displaying his newly acquired car after the primary election sent chills down the nerve of so many Nigerians.
Recently, a video surfaced on social media showcasing one alleged party delegate identified as Chief Agworo who was flaunting his multi-million brand new car he acquired after a primary election.
The video showed the picture of Chief Agworo who was looking happy as he received cheers and congratulatory messages from youths on his new car present.
This video surfaced shortly after the end of the presidential primaries of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
During the primaries, it’s been alleged that delegates received thousands of dollars for their homes. Some estimated the amount made by each delegate to be around $20,000.
It was also alleged that presidential aspirants, Atiku Abubakar and the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike were accused of being the proponent of a corruption-ridden primary election.
