Buhari Took Bank Loan To Purchase APC Nomination Form by etunoman76(m): 5:18am On Oct 17, 2014
Buhari meanwhile, yesterday procured the party’s N27.5 million expression of interest and nomination forms at the national secretariat.

Lamenting what the costs of the forms were high, he said that it took the understanding of his bankers in Kaduna and Abuja to raise the money.

“It’s a pity I couldn’t influence this amount to be put down as in the case of ladies and the disabled that intend to participate. I always looked left and right in our meetings but I could not read sympathy, so I kept my trap.

“But I felt heavily sorry for myself because I don’t want to go and ask somebody to pay for my nomination forms, because I always try to pay myself, at least for the nomination.

“N27 million is a big sum, thankfully I have personal relationship with the manager of my bank in Kaduna and early this morning, I put an early call (and) I told him that very soon the forms are coming, so, whether I am on red, or green or even black please honour it, otherwise I may lose the nomination.

“I was about to go to Kaduna this morning and I told the Chairman (John Odigie-Oyegun) but he said in that case, you better pick your form and keep a straight face. That means there is no excuse,” Buhari said.

Responding after handing over the forms to Buhari, the national chairman of the party, Chief Odigie-Oyegun explained that the N27.5m was carefully chosen to “separate men from the boys”.

“Let me say that the N27.5m is to separate the men from the boys. It is quite clear. We know you. I don’t expect you have N27m under your bed. But I expected that there are Nigerians who will vouch for you any day and who are ready to stand for you any day and that is the result that we have obtained today”, he said.

The chairman who expressed satisfaction over the turnout that greeted Buhari’s presidential declaration at Eagles Square in Abuja on Wednesday further stated that APC’s train was already on its way to the Aso Rock Presidential Villa.

Odigie-Oyegun also yesterday said the party would not be averse to the emergence of a consensus candidate should all the presidential aspirants in the party agree to it. He nevertheless stated the readiness of the party to conduct free and fair primaries that would be acceptable to all.

He said: “I want to congratulate you again on the great event that I watched very avidly on television yesterday. It was good for you but it was good for me and the party. I watched it and I knew the entire nation was watching. And I knew inside me what they would be saying. Yes, truly, APC has arrived. These people mean business. Yes, we are going to have quite a few aspirants and we are very glad at the level of display that one by one, they are putting up. It’s a clear indication of the quality in APC.

”It is a clear indication of the quality of leadership that we are offering the nation. “All the people being presented by the APC, there is not one to my mind, so far, who is not eminently qualified to govern this nation and who given even half a chance will not beat anybody PDP can bring to the fore.”

APC branches in Bauchi and Katsina have started raising funds for the nomination form since last week with the promise to come up with the total cost within two weeks. Getting loans on personal recognizance has also been in practice in Nigeria as long as you have the name. Buhari does have name as former Head of State. So many Nigerians do get loans without collaterals because of their popular last names.

There are cheap lies I can't accept. How can a sane bank grant loan to buhari knowing fully well he is on a wild goose chase again just like he's been since 2003. Banks are smarter than that except they are targetting to inherit a huge collateral and I can vividly remember that the general once said he has no property anywhere. Also APC seperating men from boys means they uphold money at the expense of quality leadership. With that statement from the party chairman, APC has just murdered democracy and should be ignored by any meaningful and patriotic Nigerian. My thoughts though undecided

politics is an expensive business.men always have to be seperated from boys and its always about funds.during the democratic primaries of 2008,clinton and obama spent a combined 600million dollars.and that's the primaries alone.the republicans spent just a little less than than while its estimated barack obama's campaign gulped more than 500million dollars after the primaries.the largest contributors to those campaigns were the banks,hedge fund managers,silicon valley and the likes.in this era of PACs and super PACS,expect billions to be spent campaigning for a job that pays just 400,000 dollars per annum.that's right,barack obama spent nearly a billion dollars campaigning for a job that pays 400,000dollars.so its not always about recouping investment,its more about passion and desire.buhari has a desire to see a better country and he's willing to do whatever it takes to actualise it.it doesn't mean I will vote for him,but I can't but admire his sterling qualities

Firstly, as a former head of state, Buhari is entitled to a monthly allowance under the "former head of state act" through which he can pay the loan. Secondly, separating the men from the boys in this context refers to streaming down the contest to the real contenders and weed.ing off the jokers.

Apc cannot murder democracy, democracy with reference to murder is being murdered in Taraba by the mighty PDP where an incapacitated fellow parades as Governor, democracy is being murdered in Ekiti where thugs tell judges the routine, democracy is being murdered in Adamawa where we just came out of a circus.

Any patriotic Nigerian still following a party whose national leader "the president" has corrupted the word corruption needs to remove the "pat" from "patriotic" and be referred to as "riotic Nigerian"

So a Nigerian bank can lend money to an individual for the sole purpose of contesting an election?
