Diaspora donation to Obi’s campaign not unlawful – Lawyer

Human rights lawyer and principal of Festus Ogun Legal, Festus Ogun, has noted that donations by Nigerians in the diaspora for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, do not violate any law in Nigeria.

This was in reaction to a call by some groups for the Independent National Electoral Commission to disqualify Obi from the 2023 presidential race for allegedly seeking funds abroad, contrary to the Electoral Act.

In a statement made available to newsmen on Monday, Ogun stated that the donations made by support groups for any candidate’s campaign did not violate the Electoral laws or any other law in Nigeria.
