I had perused the link and i picked up this quote from the above link to expose my ignorance of decency.

"Although the opposition has claimed that this election was rigged, international observers said earlier they have not seen overt evidence of fraud. But they say there is evidence that the ruling party tried to buy off voters.

During campaign rallies, opposition supporters chanted "We were not paid to be here" — a jab at Gnassingbe who they accuse of handing out cash and bags of rice to supporters.
