President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed astonishment at the huge amount of foreign currency flooding the country intending to influence the general elections beginning on Saturday.

President Buhari spoke during the Federal Executive Council, FEC meeting Wednesday.

In the President’s speech obtained by DAILY POST, he accused some politicians of flouting money laundering regulations in their desperate bid to capture political power.

President Buhari, however, commended the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC for successfully tracking the money in “millions of United States dollars.”

The EFCC success followed the presidential directive to investigative agencies to probe a number of high profile cases.
