[ad_1]

Professor Paul Ananaba, the immediate past chairman of the Nigerian Bar Association Section on Public Interest and Development Law (NBA-SPIDEL) during an interview with Arise Television voiced his opinion about the presidential flag bearer of the Labour Party and former governor of Anambra State, Peter Gregory Obi seeking campaign funds outside Nigeria.

According to him, there is no law that prevents a candidate from sourcing funds outside the Federal Republic of Nigeria. However, political parties are prohibited from doing so. He went on to say that the Independent National Electoral Commission ought to be aware of the financial status of all political parties.

He called on the electoral commission to go beyond saying that violators would be brought to book and start enforcing these laws. Speaking about the chances of Nigerians in the diaspora voting for a candidate of their choice, he advised the electoral commission to work towards that and make it possible in 2027.
