President Buhari reiterates commitment to elimination of corruption in campaign financing

President Muhammadu Buhari has reiterated his commitment to the elimination of corruption in campaign financing, saying he will not authorize the use of funds from the public treasury for his re-election campaign.

Buhari who restated this after the Federal Executive Council-FEC meeting in Abuja, directed Council members to take advantage of technology to reach out to voters on the need to return the APC-led administration in the forthcoming general elections.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, President Buhari stressed that the issue of cash payment to voters and its corrupting influence in electioneering has once again become a topical issue, adding that his campaign team should use text and multi-media messages to seek votes for the party and government.

According to the President, the APC-led administration has a clear development agenda best suited to take Nigeria forward and sustain economic development.
