President Goodluck Jonathan

The Convener, Coalition of Democrats for Electoral Reform, Mr. Ayo Opadokun, and a member of the Kwara State House of Assembly, Mr. Hassan Oyeleke, have described the donation of N21.27bn to President Goodluck Jonathan’s campaign as insensitive, an eyesore and a degeneration of national values.

They stated that it violated the Electoral Act, adding that the culprits should be punished according to the law.

They spoke on Thursday in an interview with journalists on the sidelines of the annual congress of the Offa Students’ Union.

Opadokun said it was sheer insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians that such a whooping amount would be raised for Jonathan’s campaign when many states had not paid their workers’ salaries.…check this out

Noting that a lot of infrastructure and institutions in the country were collapsing, he called on Nigerians to fight for good governance and the development of the country.

Opadokun said, “Such a donation is an establishment of degeneration of our national values. It is a violation of the electoral law. Who will prosecute them? Any government should not have allowed such iniquity to happen. It is too much of an eyesore.

“Almost 24 states in Nigeria today cannot pay their salaries in the last two months and yet these public officers are collecting N21bn for presidential election. There is too much deceit and they are not even thinking wisely. Who do they want to impress that they organised a fund raiser? …You need to read this

“Money is not everything. The huge amount that they have budgeted for that election will fail them, because it appears that Nigerians are ready for a change. They cannot be governed continuously in this way.

“If Nigerians are ready to take their destiny in their hands, they must go democratically and put a strong action to demand that these people should surrender.

“I went to jail several times in the struggle to return democracy to Nigeria. We thought that after that struggle, after we have sent the military packing; the people that will take over government will work for the interest of our people but that is not what is happening. Look at the infrastructure, there are in terrible mess.”

He also alleged that there was injustice, unfairness and inequity in the allocation of resources and personnel by successive Kwara State governments.

Oyeleke said the whopping donation to Jonathan’s campaign fund wassheer impunity, adding that the donors and organisers of the fund raiser violated the Electoral Act.

“It shows the level of our legal development and everything. It appears that the situation now is worse than the late (Gen. Sani) Abacha that we were saying was the worst. The constitution says maximum for presidential campaign expenditure is N1bn. They have Attorney General; the president has been there for nothing less than six years, they cannot claim not to be aware of the Electoral Act…check this out

“They are celebrating the donation of over N21bn. It is sheer impunity, In fact, it is an impeachable offence.”
