A concerned citizen of Nigeria has taken to social media to call upon former presidential candidate Mr. Gregory Peter Obi to provide a detailed account of the money donated to his presidential campaign during the 2023 elections. The demand for transparency and accountability comes in the wake of the Supreme Court’s confirmation of Chief Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the President of Nigeria.
The individual, identified as Theo Abu and known as @TheoabuAgada on the microblogging platform X, penned an open letter to Mr. Obi, extending congratulations for his active participation in the democratic process and highlighting the significance of accountability in the nation’s growth.
The letter explicitly requests that Mr. Obi discloses comprehensive information on the financial aspects of his campaign, focusing on the funds donated and their subsequent utilization. Theo Abu emphasized that this disclosure is essential to reinforce principles of good governance and financial transparency in Nigerian politics.
The specific details requested from Mr. Obi include:
1. A thorough breakdown of all monetary donations received during the presidential campaign.
2. An itemized account of campaign expenditures, encompassing advertising, logistics, personnel, administrative costs, and more.
The concerned Nigerian has issued an ultimatum, setting a tight timeframe for Mr. Obi’s response, preferably within the next day.
This call for accountability has generated significant attention on social media and beyond, as Nigerians await Mr. Obi’s response and anticipate the potential ripple effect on transparency and financial disclosure in future electoral campaigns.
