Seyi tagged the post “My Tuesday #BAT #MyDayInPic #Abuja #YouthCampaignOffice”. His post accumulated 3,258 likes and 172 comments before he deleted it.
Bola, a former Governor of Lagos State, is the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for the upcoming 2023 presidential election. He has had a string of criminal allegations and charges levelled against him.
Among the items on the agenda board was “The New Electoral Act“, a recent improvement on the existing Nigerian electoral laws aimed at curbing malpractices. The two items on the agenda are easy to connect, as monetary inducement is one of the electoral crimes Nigerians expect the new act to curb.
The APC was among the parties that bought votes in the Ekiti governorship election in June. Eyewitnesses also accused the party of monetary inducement in the just concluded governorship election in Osun State.
Justice Inyang Ekwo of a Federal High Court in Abuja recently ordered Usman Baba Alkali, the Inspector-General of Police, to investigate Bola for perjury.
