I can not remember INEC being this vocal on funding. The last elections involved obscene donations in APC-PDP, no noise then. They are trying to block diaspora funding, good enough for the economy but taboo for elections! The credibility of INEC is at stake.

Since Using the restriction of fund from outside is not specific to what basis.

What discrepancy is in It.
