My re-election campaign has nothing to do with government money- President Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari demonstrated his total fight against any act of corruption when he reiterated that no money from the treasury will be used for his re-election campaign. He made it clear that the change will continue to begin with him and the All Progressive Congress (APC) party at large.

‘This message needs to be taken to all Nigerians but we cannot use money from the treasury to share out to prospective voters. Nigerians want change and we alone can deliver that change. Our people can no longer be swayed by money politics,’’ The President said this at the close of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting, he equally seized the opportunity of challenging the cabinet minister to take the advantages of technology to reach out to voters on the need to return the All Progressive Congress (APC) led administration in the forthcoming elections scheduled to hold February and March, 2019. He stated;

“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,”
