It’s Sad Buhari Complained About N40m APC Form In 2019 But Approved N100m For 2023 – Adamu Garba

“My expectation was that it might remain the same because we complained at the time that the cost was too much. But the President (Muhammadu Buhari) himself lamented that the price was more than he expected. He urged the party to review and reconsider the cost in the future so that young people and those who don’t have enough could participate. I said no problem since the President also shared our concern, we should give them the benefit of the doubt. But in 2023, it is really shocking that the President superintended the NEC (National Executive Committee) meeting that approved the N100m for the cost of the presidential forms, more than double the previous cost in a country where the minimum wage is N30, 000 – that is if it is even being paid. In any ideal democratic country, you must have the right to vote and be voted for as a citizen and your rights must be recognised across the board, regardless of your economic status. However, in our case, almost 95 per cent of the people seemingly have no right to be voted for. They only have the right to vote. How can this be a democracy?”, he told Punch in a recent interview when asked why he pulled out of the presidential race under APC.
