The Oluwo of Iwoland, Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, is of the opinion that vote-buying cannot be stopped until people see the real reward of democracy.
The monarch opined that the menace could not stop until the government do the needful and allowed the people to enjoy the dividends of democracy.
The monarch said this shortly after casting his vote at Unit 1 Ward 2, in Iwo town Iwo Local Government.
He said, “Vote-buying is a challenge to democracy. The populace does not have hope. They are getting what they can get. It is a bad situation. We do not know when to get out of it. The new breeds of politicians will help us to get out of it but people are hungry. They need food. Vote buying cannot stop now until we see real dividends of democracy
“My domain is peaceful. I have told them nobody should stay home. They should show their voting strength. We want to see our strength. Nobody should stay home and watch television.”
