28 Presidential Hopefuls Bought Forms, Three Didn’t Submit – APC Spokesman

The All Progressives Congress (APC) says 28 presidential hopefuls purchased its nomination and expression of interest forms.

In April, the ruling party fixed N30 million as the cost of its expression of interest form for the presidency, while N70 million was fixed for the nomination form.

The cost of the APC presidential form sparked varied reactions as many Nigerians criticised the party for being “insensitive” to the current economic realities of the country.

Speaking on Wednesday in an interview with Channels TV, Felix Morka, APC national publicity secretary, said three persons did not submit their forms.

Morka said Chris Ngige, minister of labour; Godwin Emefiele, governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN); and Timipre Sylva, minister of state for petroleum resources, did not submit the presidential forms purchased in their names.

“We have 28 aspirants altogether who purchased forms. At the last count, we have about 25 who made submission of those forms. Three of them did not — senator Chris Ngige, Godwin Emefiele, Timipre Sylva did not submit their forms.”

Asked whether there were concerns over the buying of nomination forms by proxy, the APC spokesperson said at the point of purchase, anybody can procure forms for a politician to contest any elective position.
