Oyewumi made the confession in a video according to The Nation.

The lawmaker in the video explained how he sent his aide on errand on the eve of the election with his personal money for vote buying but was rejected by strong supporters of the All Progressives Congress(APC).

The Minority Leader, who is representing Osun West District, while receiving defectors into PDP, said “I tried all the tricks I knew to win at Onilu House (Ile Onilu) polling unit but these people didn’t allow me.

“After exhausting money for the election, I gave my personal money to Ten-Ten to give to people at night to buy votes on the eve of the election, Ten-Ten came back with my money, saying the people rejected it. I was surprised.

“That was why I reached out to these people because I cannot be a Senator and continue to fail there. I was the one who called Ayandosu from Abuja to join me in the PDP. I told him he has talent and that the party he was serving then (APC) would not allow him to grow.”
