The Chariman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, Abdulrasheed Bawa has finally disclosed that the agency is closely watching aspirants who are buying Nomination forms for the 2023 Elections.
POLITICS NIGERIA recalls that there was an outrage from Nigerians after the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC pegged the price of its 2023 Presidential expression of interest and Nomination forms at N100 million.
Many have been calling on the anti-graft agency to immediately investigate any aspirant who pays for the forms. Reacting to this development in a recent interview with Channels TV, Bawa said;
“When it comes to the issue of monitoring election funds as well as candidates’ funds, that has to do with the work of INEC in this regard but, of course, we are working hand in gloves with INEC and other related agencies in that field to ensure that we follow the money, we know the source, whether it is legitimate or illegitimate because that is what concerns us.”
So far, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, Pastor Tunde Bakara, Yemi Osinbajo, Godwin Emefiele, Ken Nnamani, Rotimi Amaechi, Ogbonnaya Onu, Emeka Nwajiuba, Ibikunle Amosun and Rochas Okorocha have picked up the N100 million Presidential Form.
