‘We Did Not Have Budget For Thugs, That Era Ended With PDP’ – APC Disowns Wadume’s N13m Allegation
Wadume in his statement allegedly confessed being given N13 million by the APC, but spent N7 million of the money for the election, in addition to collecting about N6 million from an unnamed sitting governor.
Reacting to the claim, National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Lanre Issa Onilu said the party has no budget for political thugs, stressing that it would be better for the suspect to name who gave him the money.
“Unlike the period when the ruling party dipped hands into the public treasury to fund political campaigns and elections, APC had to rely on its own resources. Even if we had all the money, we would never allocate money for kidnappers and murderers. That era ended with PDP.
