2023: APC state reasons why it pegged nomination form for N100m

The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Felix Morka, has stated that the ruling party advised itself on the price tags on its nomination forms.

The APC fixed the presidential nomination form at N100m, according to the DAILY POST yesterday.

The APC said on Wednesday that the party’s forms for the Presidential ticket will cost N100 million, governorship forms will cost N50 million, Senate forms will cost N20 million, House of Representatives forms will cost N10 million, and State Houses of Assembly forms will cost N2 million.

Many Nigerians were taken aback by this occurrence, asking whether the party was working from another nation and was unaware of the country’s present economic crisis.

Asked if the price tag was in line with the present economic situation in the country, the APC Spokesperson, in an interview with Channels Television, said, “What is the current situation in the country? We still live in a country where there are people who make legitimate money.”

And on whether the party is for the rich, he said, “The party is not for the rich. I just told you that for instance, any woman who wants to run for the office of the President is not paying the full amount. The youths as well.”

When asked who advised the party on the price tags, he said, “The party advised the party. The party thinks that…and made the decision that the value put on these forms are justified.”

Speaking further, the ruling party’s mouthpiece explained, “Don’t forget that some of the most special groups of citizens were granted high considerations. Either delivering the nomination forms for free in the case of women and people living with disabilities.

“But youths who are within 25 to 50 also have the advantage of a 50 percent discount for all positions, even the office of the President. We receive that nomination form you talk about at 50%. So, they’ll pay the expression of interest, plus 50 percent of the N70m.”
