President Buhari Vows Not To Allow Use Of Government Funds For His Re-election

President Muhammadu Buhari vowed not to authorize the use of any money from the government treasury for his re-election campaign.

The President made this declaration while speaking at the meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) in Abuja on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.

Buhari directed his cabinet ministers to take advantage of technology to reach out to voters on the need to return the All Progressives Congress (APC) led administration in next month’s general elections. He said:

“As political parties spread their ideologies and views to every nook and corner of the country, the issue of cash payment to voters and its corrupting influence in electioneering has once again become a topical issue.

“Try and use text and multi-media messages to seek votes for the party and government.

‘‘There is no money from the treasury for use in the campaigns. I will not authorize that.”
