Social Democratic Party (SDP) House of Representatives candidate in the Ibadan North East/Ibadan South East federal constituency, Mr. Deji Aboderin, said on Monday that stomach infrastructure policy cannot get Nigeria out of its current woes.
The SDP chief who said this while speaking during a live radio show in Ibadan stated that the belief that the electorate must receive money before they cast their votes can get Nigeria nowhere.

“The policy of dibo kosebe (The infrastructure of the stomach) can’t get us anywhere. When people brought money during the elections and our people say they can’t vote without raising money, that’s dibo kosebe, That can’t get us anywhere,” he said.

Instructing the electorate to scrap the idea of stomach infrastructure during elections, the SDP House of Representatives candidate in the north-east Ibadan/south-east Ibadan federal constituency urged them to focus more on the background of the candidates and what each candidate has to offer instead of raising money. before they vote.
