Govt. Fund will not be used for my re-election – President Buhari

PRESIDENT Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday made it clear that he will not authorise the use of any money from the treasury for his re-election campaign base on his commitment to eliminate corruption in campaign financing in the country.

Speaking at the close of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, President Buhari directed 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.

“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,” he said.
