Fashola said he had got dozens of requests from political organisations requesting for campaign funds for Buhari’s 2019 campaign.

According to the minister, “Certainly not under my watch, this will happen not. We never did it and we will not do it.

“Campaign needs money but members of the Public must understand that government is not a place for people who want to play politics to expect that funding will come from.”
