The Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Kwara State, Malam Garba Attaihiru Madami, has said that he refused to be compromised in the just concluded general election held in Kwara State which resulted in the wide acceptability of the results of the polls.
Madami said several overtures were made to him mostly by politicians he did not name with some of them offering “huge sums of money” but “I rejected these offers”.
The REC said at a stage “they sent women to me to woo me when they saw that I refused their monetary offers but I can’t be wooed by women. I have one wife and I have been faithful to my wife”.
Making this known in Minna, Niger State on Sunday evening after giving out his daughter in marriage said: “Politicians think they can buy anybody with money. You cannot buy honour, you can only buy dishonour.”
He explained that he was able to make his staff work according to the guidelines by sending “secret agents after them”, a development that made them to fear being arrested and prosecuted.
“I got three of them on tape compromising, I used them as example which resulted in others sitting up,” he said.

Madami said: “Today, I can hold my head high anywhere in Kwara State because no one can accuse me of compromising the electoral process.”
He however gave thumbs down to some of his colleagues who compromised their positions, insisting that about 50 per cent of his colleagues failed the integrity test.
