The All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council (PCC), yesterday, unveiled a mobile crowd-funding channel for Bola Ahmed Tinubu-Kashim Shettima presidential project ahead of the 2023 general elections.

The QR code-enabled platform was initiated to give Nigerians who believe and share the vision of Tinubu-Shettima presidential ticket to contribute towards realisation of the project. 

The presidential campaign team targets to raise N5 billion from the platform, known as “Bless Mi,” launched at the Civic Centre on Victoria Island, Lagos.

Donors can freely donate to the project, using the QR Code. The amount ranges from the least currency denomination to any amount affordable. Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, who spoke at the event, described the approach as another “creative way” of using technology to democratise funding for political activities. He said the mobile platform would offer opportunity to Nigerians supporting APC to be part of the process of forming the next Federal Government.

The governor said every little contribution received from the channel would matter in funding the APC’s presidential campaign council’s activities across the federation.

Sanwo-Olu maintained that the Tinubu-Shettima ticket represents a pan-Nigerian mandate, noting that the APC candidate remained the most competent of all presidential contenders.

But Nigerians on social media are reacting to the announcement across social media, read their comments below.
