"I have made it clear to Government officials that there will be no money from the treasury for use in the 2019 campaign.

"I will not authorise that.

"One of the legacies I would like to leave behind is the clean-up of campaign financing in Nigeria.

"We cannot and will not share money from the treasury to prospective voters.

"Nigerians have long sought for change and only the All Progressives Congress (APC) can deliver — and is delivering — that change.

"Our people can no longer be swayed by money politics," President Muhammadu Buhari said on Wednesday

This statement was a subtle way of saying there will not be money rain like it fell in Osun and Ekiti during governorship elections in those states.

Poverty in Nigeria knows no bound and this has forced people to sell their votes, backing it with statements about getting their share from a national cake that is usually in the hands of political office holders. 

The President may have been asked to make money available from the treasury and he has bluntly refused, showing it in his statement.

But whether Nigerians believe him is another thing that comes to mind. 

As election time draws near, some Nigerians are already gearing up and anticipating that money will flow as usual. 

Will they be disappointed by the political parties? 

Reactions trailed the President's statement posted on his Twitter page, bearing in mind that the vote buying that happened in Osun and Ekiti States happened under his administration.
