The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has condemned the recent hike in the price of 2023 expression of interest and nomination forms of the All Progressives Congress (APC). The National Chairman of Dr Iyorchia Ayu in a statement by his Special Adviser on Communication & Strategy, Simon Imobo-Tswam said the move shows insensitivity to the plight of Nigerian youths. On Wednesday, the ruling party had disclosed that the cost of its nomination forms for the president at N100 million, that of the governorship at N50 million. Ayu said, “Nigerians will recall how in 2014, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, now President and leader of the APC, told Nigerians that he had to borrow N27m to buy his nomination form. The same man, as leader of his party, has now sanctioned the sale of the same forms at N100m! I am told that’s an increase of N370 per cent”. “By this latest insensitive action, the APC has disenfranchised thousands of her youths and dashed the hopes of millions of Nigerian youths who applauded President Buhari when he signed the Not Too Young To Run Bill into law in 2018. It is most insensitive and mind-boggling. All those buying the N100m and N50m nomination forms should be investigated for fraud, the statement added.
