The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has announced the probe of sources of funds used in the purchase of political parties’ presidential forms.

The Chairman of the anti-graft agency, Abdulrasheed Bawa, made the disclosure during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday.

According to the EFCC czar, the purpose of investigating the sources of the funds was to confirm if they are legitimate or not.

Bawa said the agency is doing its best to ensure that corrupt elements are not given leadership positions in this country, adding that it is concerned about good governance, transparency and accountability.

He said: “When it comes to the issue of monitoring election funds as well as candidates’ funds, that has to do with the work of INEC in this regard but, of course, we are working hand in gloves with INEC and other related agencies in that field to ensure that we follow the money, we know the source, whether it is legitimate or illegitimate because that is what concerns us.

“You know that we are concerned about good governance. We are concerned about transparency; accountability. We are also concerned about ensuring that corrupt elements are not given leadership positions in this country,” the EFCC explained further.

“That is one of the things we are working behind the scene to ensure that at least we make our positions known on some certain actors within the political space in this country.”

His comments followed the outcry that greeted the prices for the nomination forms of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

While the ruling party pegged its presidential nomination form price at N100million, the main opposition party fixed its own at N40million.
