President Buhari has promised Nigerians that he will not authorise the use of money from the treasury for his re-election campaign.This he assured while speaking at the close of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting in Abuja directing cabinet members to ensure that the APC led administration is returned in next month's general election by taking advantage of technology to reach out to voters.

“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. 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 authorize that,” he said.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu,President Buhari declared that his administration has a clear develoment agenda to sustain economic deleopment and to take Nigeria forward. He said, 

“This message needs to be taken to all Nigerians but we cannot use money from the treasury to purchase  prospective voters. “Nigerians want change and we alone can deliver that change. Our people can no longer be swayed by money politics.”
