Not A Clearing House For Fund
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Monday said it would Not allow itself to be used as a Clearing House For moving slush funds by any political party.
Mr Kayode Idowu, Chief Press Secretary to INEC Chairman made this known in Abuja while reacting to a report that the Peoples' Democratic Party (PDP) had allegedly approved N13 million to host INEC auditors.
Idowu said: ''INEC is disassociating itself from such gesture and any other related proposal or programme.
''If anybody For whatever reason is looking For a head to tie an expenditure proposal that is within the PDP which has nothing to do with INEC, such person should look For other means.
''INEC will Not allow its name to be dragged into the mud by any individual or organisation, as INEC will continue to remain an unbiased umpire.''
Idowu said it was the duty of INEC to audit the financial accounts of every political party and that the exercise would soon commence.
He said the commission had been conducting such exercises independently without receiving any contribution or gratification from any of the political parties.
The spokesman assured Nigerians that the commission had been conducting the auditing of the political parties within the limits of the law and based on strict ethical professional bases.
Idowu called For investigation into the alleged N13 million earmarked by the PDP to host the INEC auditors.
He said, ''the report is good, as it will keep INEC on the alert to guard against possible excuses that any party may want to use For curious expenditure in the nearest future; so to a great extent it is very useful.''
