    President Buhari Says He Will Not Govt's Resources for Campaign, Advises Party to Take Advantage of Technology

    President Muhammadu Buhari has said he will not use government’s resources for campaign.

    This was made known by Garba Shehu, the presidential spokesman, after the president made the declaration at the close of the the federal executive council (FEC) in Abuja.

    He instructed cabinet ministers to take advantage of technology to reach out to voters on the need to return the All Progressives Congress (APC) in next month’s general election.

    “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,” he said.

    “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 authorise that.”

    The president went on to claim that the APC has a clear development agenda best suited to take Nigeria forward and sustain economic development.

    ‘‘This message needs to be taken to all Nigerians that we cannot use money from the treasury to share out to prospective voters,” he said.

    ‘‘Nigerians want change and we alone can deliver that change. Our people can no longer be swayed by money politics.”
