Nigeria’s Parliament has passed a law capping campaign spending for next year’s elections.
Presidential candidates are to spend not less than 14 million dollars while Gubernatorial candidates are to spend 3 million dollars.
Senate candidates have been given a 700 thousand dollars cap with candidates for the House of Representatives restricted to spend only 280 thousand dollars
