Surfaced articles indict People calling to Arrest Obi Over Diaspora Donations
Some surfaced publications have placed rival political party members calling to halt and arrest Labour Party’s Peter Obi over Diaspora Fund Donation exercise.
The organizers of programmes having Obi as one of their invitees had strategically included monetization of event gate pass.
The opposition parties including the Attorney General of the Federation have warned to stop further fundraising outside Nigeria and the donors and receivers face severe punishment.
Malami who keenly warned the LP presidential candidate, Obi said both constitution and electoral act condemned it and would go to any length to apprehend offenders.
However, retrieved articles from APC 2015 campaign indicate Nigerians overseas made consecutive donations to president Mohammadu Buhari via First Bank Account, 2026724405 with sort code 011150000.
Subsequently, Obi’s media group has clarified that the diaspora tours are not to raise campaign funds but to honour special invitations.
We understand no accountability was equally carried out to educate Nigerians on the total amount Buhari’s campaign received and how it was spent, hence, the opposition wants Obi to account for every kobo wired to him.
Similarly, the rival parties want Peter Obi to stop taking politics to church or mosque.
In a separate reaction, Obi said the programmes he graced in the church were invitations organized by the churches.
