2015: Buhari’s campaign gets N54m boost

Muhammadu Buhari

The presidential flag-bearer of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday said he has received N54 million from Nigerians in support of his campaign for the 2015 elections.

Mr. Buhari, who disclosed this during a news conference in Abuja, added that his support groups had risen to 82 with membership in all regions of the country.

“So far, Nigerians have donated N54,415, 000. 70 to support our campaign ahead of the 2015 presidential election and currently 82 support groups have been registered under the Buhari Support Organisations (BSO),” he said.

“The BSO has 475,796 coordinators and a total membership in the region of 8,492, 226 across the country.”

He thanked the donors for donating generously “to actualise our dreams and we intend to use the registration and donation cards to enlist the members of the groups as volunteer change agents”.

Mr. Buhari, however, warned that only the authorised account designated for the crowd-funding, which he is the sole signatory to, is the BSO account with First Bank Nigeria PLC.

“I know we live in difficult times. There is insecurity, corruption, poverty and above all the uncertainty of lives which is becoming unbearable.

“I want to appeal to our supporters to continue making sacrifice till we get the needed change,” he urged.

    Good, clean money from Nigerians committed to change. Not shrouded kickbacks from government contractors, government apologists and relevance-seeking rogues. Could the Buhari Campaign team let those in diaspora know the account to put our widow’s mite into, please.

    • Forward_Nigeria

      Please tell us how you know good, clean money from Nigerians committed to “change”

      Also tell us where APC got the money it lavished on its Tinubu orchastrated National Convention where over $10Billion Dollar notes exhanged hands ….. do you know how many Billions of Dollars the Judas of Port Harcourt …. doomed Governor Rotimi Amaechi brought into Lagos?

      Please stop displaying your senselessness in public.

      • PureNigerian

        You don’t raise false issues because you have to but only when you have credit info.
        that can be substantiated. You are very myopic in your analysis.

      • Wähala

        @Deri Orbuka…
        It’s you who’s displaying senselessness in public. APC convention is about five candidates and a Party affair, those unnamed criminals are Dumbo’s cronies redirecting stolen monies to back just one person, and a huge amount at that. Mumu, they are using money given to them to build roads back to Dumbo in return for more money to build no roads… do you see the logic now? Aborigine drunk, I’ve told you severally… “you smell like soaked stock fish from a mile away” to me. Drunkard!

      • Mosaku 147

        Hear yourself yourself talk,”where over $10Billion Dollars notes exchanged hands”. Did your dumbo not say about a year ago that America will be aware if such money is taken out. Didirin oshi.
        If you know what is good for you and will also advise you to discreetly pay into that account so the moving train will doesn’t leave you behind. oloshi.

      • Sadiq Garba

        Even with the so-called lavish of $10 Billion dollars, Amaechi seem to working more than the men in Aso Rock. transformation of Rivers State has not stopped for a second. What’s your take on this?

    • walejohnson

  • Wähala

    Not just clean money from ordinary Nigerians… but the way it’ll be spent is the hammer: “Designated for crowd-funding” What is Dr. Dumbo designating his N21bn to… and who are the secret PDP donors? Nigerians deserve to know biko…
    Odeku jare!

  • Gideon Orkar

    Money always goes to the winner. N26 billion and the sheik was only able to raise half a billion. No contest!

    • endingNaija

      Corrupt and corrupted money you meant? Money forcibly and corruptly procured from PDP governors who are not paying workers salaries? I got you. I underatand.

      • Kolawole Obafemi

        I heard the chairman of Skye Bank, Mr Ayeni personally donated #2 billion to Jonathan campaign. That much from one person in a country rated as one of the least prosperous in the world. Waoh!!

    • Don Messi

      My brother, ‘half a billion’???
      You are too kind with your maths!
      N54M is just about twentieth(1/20) OF A BILLION!
      This is not a case of ‘no contest’, BUT A WALK-OVER!!!!

      • Gideon Orkar

        I even think say na 540 million. We will rape Buhari again like we did in 2011. He is a born looser

  • Gideon Orkar

    Buhari if you like wear all the now ties in the world, we know you are an Islamic fundamentalist and no vacancy for you

    • endingNaija

      It seems you are pained that NIgerians have accepted Buhari given the failure of your candidate -Goodluck Jonathan. I see.

    • Mosaku 147

      Why take buhari alone? Did you intentionally forget to add his Christian fundamentalist running mate Osinbajo? You and I know this religious lines your likes are stirring up has not in the past done your Jona any good and certainly will not now. Come of it guy,your game is up.

    • Abdullahi Abba Bukar

      If Buhari is an Islamic fundamentalist what about your GEJ? Remember GEJ always goes to churches to tell Nigerians the state of Nigeria and he visited to condole the Christians that lost their love ones when a church collapsed in Lagos but has he for once visited the predominantly Muslims Northeast area where people are being kill daily to condole them?

      • Gideon Orkar

        You can take your Muslim votes to Sambisa who cares?

        • ConcernedCitizen2015

          olodo… take your Muslim votes to Sambisa who cares. Please send this special message to Muazu the Chairman of your party, also to the Governors of Katsina, Bauchi, Kogi, Kaduna, Niger, Adamawa, Gombe, Jigawa, Kebbi and Taraba. They will give you an award for your thinking and writing skills. Please keep up the good work.

          • Gideon Orkar

            The Muslim North will vote against GEJ like they did in 2011 so nothing new there. I repeat against, take your Muslim votes to Sambisa forest so that Shekau can sleep on them!

        • Guest

          Are you Gideon Orkar who was killed by firing squad with two hundred bullets ? When did you resurrected ? Your second death is coming very soon , your second death will be by HYPERTENSION not BULLET after that you will never rise again till on the of judgement .

          • Gideon Orkar

            I am Gideon Orkar whose political map of Nigeria was replicated in 2011 and will be replicated, again, in 2015!

            No vacancy in Ado Rock for Haramites

        • Abdullahi Abba Bukar

          Oh! yes we will when freemansion live the leadership.

  • Frank Bassey

    Who donated this money? How did they make it? Buhari of 1983 will NEVER receive this bribe in the name of ‘donation’. Buhari of 1983 is not Buhari of 2014/15 and that is why he can never be the one to effect the change we need.

    • Mosaku 147

      So who would you suggest should or will effect that change you desire? Certainly not dumbo!

    • IskaCountryman

      amaechi would multiply that by 100…he is our mugu…

  • Otile

    How much of that money is from Rivers? Imam Buhari be honest.

    • Mosaku 147

      The entire sum! Anything else to say?

      • Otile

        Yes, when are you going give the people back their money? You know after the election Imam Buhari will use the leftover from Rivers money and head to court to squander further. This is not good.

        • Ifeoma

          Kai this otile is so blind sided…..ah I pity your wife o! Can’t bliv one can be so shallow minded

    • Abdullahi Abba Bukar

      Billion of supporters across the world is better than N20bn looted from state governments. Any good hearted person will be glad to have a leader who cares about his country. Not a leader that will go about dancing in public when his country men, women and children are being kill daily. A leader that will pay condolence visit to people who lost their love ones. A leader that will equiped our military to get rid of the terrorists activities in the country not that who will enriched his few individuals friends and offer his friendship hands to people alleged to be sponsors of Boko Haram.

      • IskaCountryman

        billions of supporters?

    • Sadiq Garba

      Ask Rotimi Amaechi.

  • Aj

    How come some demented moron young Nigerians in their 30’s-50’s are campaigning for septuagenarians to come and lead them? Are some of them not matured enough to rule Nigeria? How old was Gowon when he took over the leadership of Nigeria? Must Nigerians be recycling their old fomer head of state?

    • IskaCountryman

      katon banza…

      • Guest

        Yes he is a confirmed moron

  • Adetayo Adewale Adebowale

    Go bless Nigeria. God bless Gen.Muhammadu Buhari

  • Yemisi Osinbajo

    The rats are out of their smelly holes once again!
    Blab and run!
    They went into hibernation when Sheik Gumi screamed that he and his family members were being threatened!
    Some of us have alwys said APC is full of violent men and women.
    Same APC members threatening Gumis family..same APC members like wahala, endingnaija, mosaku, amazing2012, etc etc threatening other online users here too!
    Terrorists! All of them!

  • TrueFairGame

    Good submission. However, In my view, if we have quality Senate and Reps we dont need this tension-building avenues capable of worsening an already bad situation.
