“Assuming you sell your vote for N10000 divide it by 365 days in a year and that’s around N28 divide further by 4 years and that’s approximately N7.”

“Now imagine selling your future at a rate of N7 per day. I suggest we make this go viral, maybe on social media, billboards, placards, t-shirts. Perhaps If people see it from this perspective, they will think twice about selling their votes. Get your PVC”
