President Muhammadu Buhari says there is a huge amount of foreign currency flooding the country intended to influence the outcome of the general election commencing on Saturday.
In a statement by Malam Garba Shehu, the president’s senior special assistant on media and publicity, Buhari raised the alarm during the federal executive council (FEC) meeting on Wednesday.
Shehu said the president accused some politicians of flouting money laundering regulations in their desperate bid to capture political power.
He, however, commended the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) for successfully tracking the money in “millions of United States dollars”.
According to him, the EFCC success followed the presidential directive to investigative agencies to probe a number of high profile cases.
He reassured the nation of his administration’s determination to wage relentless war against money laundering and terrorist financing.
Buhari also reiterated his appeal to Nigerians, especially politicians, to place the interest of the “country above all others, as they troop out to cast their votes in the coming elections”.

Untiil end of time ,a grown up man will have the right to his affiliation ,but let’s be more nationalistic than being patriotic means we r spinning jockeyed by the establishment which has for long maintained the colonial rule .We as a Ppl have failed to do a self reconnaissance of our lackluster factors .We failed bcaz we chose to fail .How quickly we forgot the news making waves all around the world the corruption of the last PDP government.If I hate the right to vote as a Nigerian no blinking ,my vote for Buhari .Guys in the domestic can’t see it but from the outside world we can feel his presence ,effort and the discipline he’s always portrayed as the best that ever emerged in modern African history as a corrupt free personality .I will put my hand on a chop board for this man ,even though I do not posses the right to vote .Nigeria pls see it in a long term and stoop seeing it from the presence situation .No great nation was built in the sphere of 4 yrs ,but the possibility to achieve that potential is foreseeable if we give it the chance it needed .Dont blame Buhari government for a poor economy ,it’s a global situation .It does not matter the party in Aso rock ,the global economy may handicapped the performance even if the political will is there .

Hahahaha! All what you said are nonsensical nonsense. APC & BUHARI are failure. When the economy of a nation is zero, the ouths are dying of hunger and unemployment. Dollar rose from N145 to N365. Is that GOOD NEWS? Before Buhari became the president, fuel was cheaper, garrison was cheaper, cost of living was cheaper. Fulani herdsmen weren't killing ppl like they are killing ppl now. The wasn't much tribalastic hatered. Nigeria was more peaceful. As soon as Buhari entered, he took time to manipulate all the sensitive positions he appointed his Northern brothers. That is why Nigeria can't move forward. No matter how bad ATIKU is, he is one trillion times better than BUHARI.

The currency part can’t be blamed on Buhari ,Nigeria currency has for long been overrated  and long due for devaluation.Secondly ,Buhari government had no choice but to increase price of gasoline ,simply Bcax the previous government virtually emptied the treasury .Thirdly,On the issue of tribalism ! Nigerian is a nation divided along ethinicity and every little problem ,choice of whom you chose to associate with or appoint in your cabinet is seeing by majority Nigerian as tribal factor ,hmmm .Well ! In that area I can tell you ,if u r Igbo extraction and be a president of Nigeria ,u May deemed it very necessary or personally compelled to surround yourself with people u know won’t cast a dirt on your integrity .Governmebts all around the world is dealing with challenges to keep the economy moving even though there’s forecast from many quarters the global economy is surely hitting hard and Nigeria is not exception as a member of the global community .

Nigeria naira was overvalued for years and trust me it was right to devalued it .The devaluation of naira wouldn’t have caused inflation if the government has done the right thing to increase interest rates ,but like I said before ,the government was handicapped bcaz revenue shrink in all sector of the economy.Therfore,to meet up government spending, rates got to be hiked at the pump especially

Story story, story!! Failure is not an excuse. Buhari silence in Fulani hearders killings nko? Nigeria is in zero level. Our president is not in control of the government. His wife confirmed it. His state of health is nothing to write home about. When you ask him a question he will say something else, is that the kind of president you support? Are you daft or blind? He knows nothing about our economy. How on earth can USA vote for someone who can't defend his youths? Or vote for someone who knows nothing about their economy?

But at least you can trust this man with your money .If your money isn’t stolen then it’s a good news for Nigeria future ,Bcax the next administration will have enough in government coffers to spend on the economy and infrastructure.Nigeria is a poor country and my advise for Nigerian is ,they should stop seeing their nation as a rich nation .The country has resources to help it out of its present predicament but the political corruption,lack of political will and the insatiable of Nigerian elected official has caused the nation to nosedived into the oblivion and what’s supposed be rated a wealthy nation is now known as a poor nation .Pls do the maths ! Take a pen and list all Nigerian past leaders both elected or militarily appointed ,how much money each of these men have stolen from Nigeria .if u able to correlate this list ,I’m sure you will come down to unimaginable figure that could have listed Nigeria among the most fantastic nation on planet earth .And this is why a clean and corrupt free personality is better than the rocky five smiling faces with dirty heart .Safe Nigeria future ,vote Buhari

You are one of the people who don't decieve theirselves. APC ruined the economy of nigeria in an interval of 3 and the half years right under our noses.
