There are allegations that the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) was at the forefront of vote-buying during the March 18, 2023, governorship and state assembly elections in Anambra.
These claims have been widely circulated and shared across various social media platforms.
Anambra did not hold a governorship election, but there was a state house of assembly election.
The CDD Election War Room was able to confirm, through its observer coordinator, that there was extensive vote-buying in Ihiala LGA of Anambra and other areas, which he claimed was spearheaded by APGA.
He went on to say that the vote-buying was open and brazen, resulting in a clash between APGA and LP agents that was not resolved until security officials were invited.
The claim that there were incidences of vote-buying in Anambra is true.
