Disclose your sources of funds, Kwara PDP dares APC


ILORIN – The PDP in Kwara State has challenged the ruling APC in the state to publicly disclose the sources of funds  it had been using to finance the party since its registration.
PDP Publicity Secretary, Chief Rex Olawoye, threw the challenge on Tuesday in a statement he issued in Ilorin.
The PDP was reacting to a statement credited to Alhaji Sulyman Buhari, the state’s APC Publicity Secretary,  accusing the PDP of organising a fund raising event  in Abuja.
“We challenge the APC to tell the world the source(s) of the money it has been using to prosecute party activities over the past few months,” Olawoye said.
He also challenged the APC to disclose the source of the money it used to pay for the multi-million naira mansion on Peter Tokulola Street in Ilorin which  the party recently acquired as  secretariat.
He said the APC whose activities were being “ sponsored and funded from public funds ”  had no right to criticise the PDP for  raising funds for its campaign.
Olawoye said the PDP raised funds from well-to-do members of the party and public spirited members of  the society.
The APC in Kwara State had accused members of the PDP in the state of playing lip service to the issue of ministerial slot for the state.
Buhari had alleged  that instead of ensuring that the state’s  slot in the Federal Executive Council was filled, the PDP was preoccupied with organising  an  event to raise  N5 billion in Abuja. (NAN)
