Nigeria Consolidation Ambassador Network (NCAN), a group that bought Expression of Interest and Nomination Forms for President Muhammadu Buhari’s re-election’s bid, said that its action had not violated any law in the country.
The NCAN National Coordinator, Barr. Sanusi Musa, who addressed journalists in Abuja on Friday, also dismissed the insinuation that the group got the money from Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.
Musa, who said the group took time to study the legal provisions, added that the extant laws being cited referred to contributions in support of a party’s candidate in an election and not an individual who would only become an aspirant after completing the screening exercise.
On the alleged connection to Governor Bello, he said that he had never met the number one citizen of Kogi State not to talk of receiving funds from him.
Musa, who said the funds was raised by members from their hard earned resources, expressed the readiness of the group to formally present the forms to President Buhari.
