2019 presidency: Your governors stealing public funds for campaigns – Sowore attacks APC, PDP

The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC),
Omoyele Sowore, has accused governors serving under the All
Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of
stealing money from their states to fund 2019 campaigns.

Sowore also alleged that the main political parties have already spent
beyond the threshold for presidential election during primaries.

Sowore made the allegation during his appearance on Channels
Television political programme on Sunday.

"They have already spent a billion naira during primaries, or more.

"What they spent in Port Harcourt alone was $25 million in one day.
All the Bureau de Change operators in Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja all
relocated to Port Harcourt.

"I am an investigative reporter before I came into this job of running
for office and I can tell you that they are not allegations. They are
proven, we have evidence of them doing it (and) they haven't disputed
them by the way."

"You know that governors are stealing from their states to buy
campaign vehicles; otherwise, let them tell us – the APC and PDP how
they are raising funds for the election because none of them has done
any funder raiser known to anybody since we started the election
circle," Sowore said.

He, thereafter, called for transparency on the part of the political
parties and asked Nigerians to hold them to account.

On the other hand, Sowore explained that his campaign group was
raising funds to finance his ambition of becoming president in 2019.

He further challenged other presidential candidates to come forward
and explain to Nigerians how they have been raising funds for their
campaigns.
