Fresh supply of Buhari scratch cards is being expected in Adamawa state after the ones supplied were exhausted within 24 hours, Ibrahim Waziri, chairman of Buhari Campaign Organisation in the state, has said.

Waziri, who made the disclosure while addressing reporters in Yola, capital of the state on Thursday, said that N3million worth of the cards were supplied to Adamawa.

He said the prize of the cards ranged from N100 to N10, 000.

The APC had earlier disclosed its intention to raise campaign funds for Muhammadu Buhari, its flag bearer at next month’s presidential election, by reaching out to the public.

“The N3 million cards so far supplied to the state last week had been sold to supporters in less than 24 hours,” he said.

“Fresh supply is now on its way, and by the grace of God, the cards will be available on Friday.”

Waziri said as soon as the cards arrive, the organisation would announce the designated selling points for interested members of the public to buy.

Meanwhile, the Buhari campaign groups said they had a total of N118m in their coffers and that the money would be judiciously used in support of the presidential bid of the former military head of state.

The disclosure was made during a meeting between Hamid Ali, a retired colonel and the chief of staff of Buhari Support Organisation (BSO), and members of the organisation.

The BSO announced that it raised the additional amount through the sale of N100 scratch cards and direct donations.

“From the last press conference Buhari had in December where he announced N54 million as the amount raised, we are happy to inform you that from that time till now, we have raised an additional N64,702,265.

“We salute the courage and commitment of Nigerians across ethnic and religious divides, who desire true change and have confidence in the ability of the general to provide the leadership that will secure our nation and prosper our people.

“We need to do more; we need more money. Go to nooks and crannies, get people to donate, urge people to do more. We shall not relent until we get Buhari on the presidential seat in 2015.”

About 85 Buhari support groups attended the appraisal meeting.
