Some personnel of the Economic Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) have stormed the MKO Abiola Stadium, Abuja, the venue of the ongoing Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential primary election.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the officers arrived the venue this evening. The purpose of their visit is not yet clear, but this newspaper understands that it is most likely related to cases of vote buying.
Over a dozen officers dressed in their official red overcoats with EFCC boldly written behind were sighted moving around the delegate’s stand.
811 delegates elected from across the country are expected to vote at the convention where they will pick from a list of 13 aspirants in the race.

Others are two former senate presidents, Bukola Saraki and Pius Anyim; former governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose; and a publisher, Dele Momodu. Also in the race are a pharmacist, Sam Ohabunwa; Charles Ugwu and Chikwendu Kalu.
