Tinubu Diaspora Campaign Director Returns Undisbursed N2.4m

Prince Ade Omole,the Director of the Diaspora Directorate of the Tinubu-Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, PCC, has returned N2.4m back into the PCC purse.

The money was the balance of the initial N10m campaign fund disbursed to the diaspora team in the preparation for the presidential election.

The statement was disclosed in an issues statement in Abuja, noting that  his directorate also submitted an eight-page expenditure file showing a breakdown of the expenses incurred as well as a 22-page campaign report.

The documents were handed over to Christopher Tarka, the Deputy Secretary of the Presidential Campaign Council. The diaspora director further explained that the documentation detailed their activities during the campaign season and in the build-up to the poll.

Omole also thanked the leadership of the PCC on behalf of the diaspora directorate for the opportunity to serve the ‘party and country.’

“Importantly, the Diaspora Directorate received only N10million during the campaign phase. The sum was allocated for Diaspora Directorate members’ transportation but only N7.6 million was disbursed while the balance has been refunded accordingly”, he said.

Tarka in return applauded Omole and his team for their forthright leadership, accountability, transparency and contribution to Tinubu’s victory as the president-elect.

Tarka also said that he was surprised by the action of the diaspora team because campaign directors of political parties rarely return undisbursed funds. 

He added while lots of campaign directorates kept complaining about inadequate funding (and rightly so), the diaspora team were prudent with their expenses up to the end of the campaign.

“Campaign sub-committees usually do not return the money but you have, again, blazed the trail. This directorate took Tinubuism and APC’s Action Plan to the world and donated several campaign souvenirs worth millions of naira from Nigerians across the globe,” he said.
