Oby Ezekwesili publishes campaign finances

The breakdown published on Ezekwesili’s campaign website show she raised N48,957,416.00, $17,645.00, and £200 between October 1, 2018, and February 2, 2019.

During that period, the campaign spent over N12 million on travels, N10.6 million on media and publicity, and another N15.3 million on “campaign mobilization fees, meeting and logistics costs”.

Printing of campaign posters and other materials cost the campaign a total ? 1,222,920.00, the breakdown shows.

Ezekwesili said ?2,435,609.81, $12,634.50, £200.00 are left in the campaign bank account.

In a country where campaign finances are absolutely opaque, the move by Ezekwesili to publish her the financial record drew applause from many.

However, the national chairman of the party, Alhaji Gani Galadima, who had earlier led party leaders to disown Ezekwesili and adopt the candidacy of President Muhammadu Buhari, alleged Ezekwesili of mismanagement of campaign funds.

Galadima said that the statement of account she sent was unacceptable.

Speaking to journalists in Abuja, ACPN chairman charged her to emulate other candidates as regards transparency in campaign funds, stating this case was not the #BringBackOurGirls project which she championed.

“It is the right of the party that must submit report on campaign fund and expenditures to have all the information in the spirit of transparency and accountability in line with (s.92(3)) of the Electoral Act as amended,” Galadima said.
