What proof do you have that its transparent. Well, just say its commendable.

In a sane country, this guy would have won the elections, because he was by far more knowledgeable and direct than others. . but Nigeria na paddy paddy things be everything. .

Without comprehensive breakdown this is pure bull shit that gullible people would buy. Show us the statements of account for 50weeks indicating cash flow, and show us the closing balance. Then categories and itemize the expenses giving acceptable pricing for each item. Am sure if he was giving this by his company auditors/accountants on how his personal money were spent , he wouldn't accept this, but since it's public. Fund.

US, budget proposal as huge as it is gives comparehensive details of items making the list to be funded by public tax payers, and the public can compare prices to tackle budget bloating / Padding.

At least he gave account.
In Nigeria has any candidate ever given such account before?

Let's give the man kudos and advice him gently not knock him

Who followed the election fundraising for APC? they did not even care to do that, just dipped hand into public coffers and helped themselves..serving some people here between 5-20k to forfeit their institutional right to select leaders.

Great move by Yele, If you have a contrary opinion as to how public funding, budget and accountability is done; move to the back hedges of civilisation with your clan.

Perhaps I expected too much from him as a Nigerian. But if You received donation then publish the statement of account, you can't barely tell us the donation was N157m and we believe, and tell us you spent xy millions on logistics without giving the components, if he visited 774 local government in Nigeria it means he spent close to 400K per lga and I knew he visited just one spot in ibadan once. We need accountability to grow and he seem like an alternative to the old ones

See integrity sha
Isn't it obvious? We are torn between two parties. A section see supporters of one party as zombies while the said zombies see the others as wailers. Sadly, a few of us saw both as irredeemable.

I never regretted voting Sowore and would gladly do so with the knowledge that he won't win. As a people, we deserve the useless people who govern us.

At least there is a will to give account to the people. Its a good development. If others can also inflate theirs in a short period things will take the right route.

Omoyele Sowore, presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the just concluded general election, has given detailed account of expenditure from public funds he solicited to fund his presidential ambition.

In a detailed infograph released on Sunday, the Sowore 2019 Campaign Organisation revealed that it had spent a grand total of N157,884,936.98 for its campaign activities.

The campaign, which spanned 50 weeks, and cut across 36 states in over 15 countries detailed its expenses to include townhall rentals, which gulped N9.8million for event centres and N3.2million for accessories.

Sowore raised monies publicly through a GoFundMe account and a Zenith Bank Account.

If Sowore becomes Nigeria's president, all these corrupt politicians are in trouble.

But Nigeria is not a serious country, so Sowore can never be the president at this young age.

He should start from his state.

That was the test Rochas was asked to undergo and he failed woefully.

He’s not forming.

Bro, Sowore gave account of his expenses and donations received almost every night on Facebook like.
At first, I donated 50k anonymously and was utterly surprised and shocked when he thanked the anonymous donor for 50k.

1 week later, I donated 1million anonymously and he still thanked the donor. We don’t deserve this guy I swear

Have you made the same demand on the candidate that you supported? Has he published the details of his campaign expenses just as you stated?
