Campaign Funds: Abdulrazak must account for N1 billion he took on behalf of APC - Bolarinwa~NEWSEXTRA




The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress ( APC) in Kwara State, Bashir Bolarinwa has again hit back at Gov. Abdulrazaq over the spending of campaign funds received by the governor on behalf of the party from the APC National Headquarters in the build up to the 2019 general elections. 

Bolarinwa in a phone conversation with media men on Sunday said the governor collected the sum of one billion naira from the APC National Headquarters to prosecute the elections in the state. 

“ Once again, I maintained that the governor has told the world the truth that he did not fund the campaign of the party. He was contacted and after approving the campaign structure headed by Chief Sunday Oyebiyi, the Senatorial Chairman of APC in Kwara North Senatorial district, he nominated architect Kale Belgore to be on the campaign. The report of the committee was sent to him through his nominee but he turned his back and abandoned the party. We were desperate to win the election and change the status quo in the state. We approached Alhaji Lai Mohammed and it was the minister who funded the campaign of the party for the 2019 elections including the presidential campaign.” He maintained

On the allegation over the first tranche of the campaign fund received from the APC National Headquarters by the governor on behalf of the party, which he said remained unknown to him, He said: “Let me state this once again for prosterity sake, I think the governor need to explain to the general public and the overwhelming supporters of our great party on how he spent the sum of one billion naira received solely by him on behalf of the party in a bid to prosecute the 2019 general elections.”

“”Governor AbdulRazaq collected this money, warehoused it and didn't carry us, the party executives along which I'm the Chairman”.

It will be recalled that a former Vice Chairman of the APC in the North Central had said that the erstwhile National Chairman of the APC, Comrade Adams Oshiomole had given N1 billion Naira each to states the party desired to win in 2019. He listed Kwara, Delta, River and other states that were then in the opposition among the states that the APC earmarked and disbursed slugh funds for.
