Oyegun said that it was wrong to ask the EFCC to investigate the sources of funding for the APC campaign because unlike the PDP, his party did not use public money to fund its presidential election.
According to NewsDay, Oyegun said APC campaign funds were sourced from individuals and not monies that belong to the generality of Nigerians.
Oyegun clarified that the Buhari-led APC administration was not probing the donations individual made to the PDP during the polls but the utilization of public funds.
