The All Progressives Congress (APC) has separated itself from the N13 million purportedly given to suspected Kidnap boss, Alhaji Hamisu Balla, a.k.a Wadume for the Presidential decision.
Wadume in his announcement purportedly admitted being given N13 million by the APC, however burned through N7 million of the cash for the race, notwithstanding gathering about N6 million from an anonymous sitting senator.
Responding to the case, National Publicity Secretary of the APC, Mallam Lanre Issa Onilu said the gathering has no spending limit for political hooligans, focusing on that it would be better for the suspect to name who gave him the cash.
“It is expected that the alleged kidnapper, having come face to face with justice, would throw whatever he could lay his hands on into the fray. In any case, our party did not have budget for thugs.
“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.
“Perhaps, he can name whoever gave him money. Definitely, it was not APC. From his purported confession, he claimed to be a PDP member before he went on to contest under another party.”
