INEC Begs EFCC To Monitor Politicians’ Spending During Campaign Ahead of 2019 Elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission has called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to monitor the sources of funding of political parities’campaigns as the 2019 general elections approach.

The Chairman of INEC, Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, said this when the acting EFCC Chairman, Mr. Ibrahim Magu, paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja on Thursday.

According to the Electoral Act, no presidential candidate can spend over N1bn, no governorship candidate can spend over N200m and no senatorial candidate can spend above N40m. The law also limits the amount of money that a person or association can donate to a political campaign.

However, the INEC chairman said most political parties and politicians had no regard for the law. He therefore called on the EFCC to assist INEC in curbing corruption.
