Femi Falana, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, has disparaged General Muhammadu Buhari, the APC Presidential Aspirant to taking a N27.5m loan from a bank to purchase his Party’s expression of interest and nomination form for the February 2015 Presidential election.
The Lagos Lawyer, who was speaking as a guest lecturer on Thursday at the Nigeria Union of journalists, Paramount FM Chapel Press Week, in Abeokuta the Ogun State Capital said that Buhari’s act is indeed inexcusable and it amounts to politics of money.
Speaking Falana said; “It is indefensible for Gen. Buhari to have obtained a loan facility of N27.5m just to obtain a form of intent to contest in the presidential election in 2015 under the All Progressives Congress.”
“Is he going to obtain another loan during his campaign, because in Nigeria, it costs billions of Naira to run a presidential campaign?”, Falana asked.
Femi Falana while advising journalists said; “Journalists must show more than a passing interest on how those aspirants want to manage the economy. The government must address mass illiteracy, corruption and poverty.”
“Government gave Ebola Virus Disease attention because it is no respecter of anybody. But government is not conscious of the security of the people because they have security guards protecting them,” he added.
