The African Democratic Congress (ADC) presidential candidate, Dumebi Kachikwu, on Tuesday, accused the former deputy governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Kingsley Moghalu of bribing officials of the ADC delegates.
Kachikwu said Moghalu did not meet all the delegates, rather, h,e had meetings with three delegates per state.
The ADC candidate is the younger brother of a former Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu.
He defeated Moghalu, in the primary election held in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on June 9.
The ex-CBN deputy governor had since dumped the ADC.
Kachikwu spoke on Politics Today interview on Channels TV.
He said: “ADC will rely on the goodwill of the people who are tired of the status quo to win in the general elections. People have already shown that they want to move in a new direction. So this is enough for us to capitalize on.
“I am not worried about Tinubu, Atiku and others. This time is different, and we have the support of the Nigerian masses who have had enough of the bad leadership of the current administration to emerge victorious. 2023 will be a great bus stop.”
“I didn’t pay any delegates to win. I’m dismayed at allegations from Kingsley Moghalu. He didn’t meet the delegates completely as I did. He had meetings with three delegates per state. His allegations were wrong.
“I hosted delegates irrespective of affiliations. The goodness of money is in what prevails. So the accusation that the process that produced me was fraudulent doesn’t hold water. He (Moghalu) was the one that paid delegates cash.”
