Adamu Garba Unable To Purchase Form Due To High Cost by chieyine(m): 8:58am On Sep 12, 2018
Adam Garba, a Presidential Aspirant under the platform of APC has backed out from contesting in APC due to the high cost the Presidential form is sold.

He wrote on his Twitter handle;

Fellow Nigerians, I write to notify you that I was unable to pick the nomination form for my party, the All Progressive Congress. In good conscience, I cannot justify legitimizing such a huge sum of money just to participate in the party primaries for the coming 2019 election.

Reasons:

I consider taking such a step to set a bad precedent for the future of young people contesting positions in political parties, specifically the APC. Many of which currently are disenfranchised, not for lack of competence, character or capability, but on the monetary ground.
We deem it fit to go in solidarity with other young people, who due to over monetization of the political space in Nigeria, we’re finding it hard to participate. We take this as a direct plan to sideline majority of Nigerians, particularly the youth in the coming 2019 election

In a country where 92% of the population is living below N60,000.00 a month & 87 million people in extreme poverty, 6 people get to extreme poverty level per minute, we consider such amount to be insensitive to the feelings of most Nigerians, currently going through hard times

My conscience does not reconcile with the fact that we put such amount in a country that needs consideration for the poor, encouragement for the youth to participate in politics and, a progressive party that will bring about inclusive governance based on capacity, not money.

We understand that the party needs to generate fund to carry on with its obligations, but parties generate fund from other sources, like memberships, etc not from the candidate. Such practice will eventually encourage public servant to be corrupt prone, once in office.

We’re still conducting a nationwide consultation from all stakeholders. We’ll let our supporters know our next line of action in due cause. However, know that the journey to make Nigeria great is an unceasing one. We will continue as soon as we are through with consultations.

Thank you so very much for your continued support as we keep marching Forward for Progress


But come to think of it, even the president could not purchase the form. A group of people whose sources of income wasn’t scrutinized bought the form for him or is it all a charade as exposed by Senator Shehu Sanni. This government signed Not Too Young To Run bull but what we were not told is that “The Youth will be too Poor to afford just the nomination form”

The ruling party should as a matter of urgency review downward the cost of its nomination forms

You lost me here Mr Garba, with this your defence of Buhari. Buhari can, and you know it, purchase the PDP and APC and APGA form put together if he wants to.

Cease the subtle defence.

Re: Adamu Garba Unable To Purchase Form Due To High Cost by KenOne: 9:54am On Sep 12, 2018
Adam Oshiomhole is ridiculing APC ever since he became the chairman so many controversies.

From direct primaries to high cost of nomination forms to sponsoring parallel factions across the states that Nigerians are making mockery of APC.

APC is fractured in all the state. Wisdom tells you that there are some changes and decision you don't change or touch, even in an organisation to avoid rebel.

APC nomination forms should have being the cheapest of all other parties, dabbling with mode of primaries wouldn't have being his agenda allow the status quo to remain.

But Oshiomhole wants to remove party structures from the governors and put governors arch rivals in position so that they'll be loyal to him and he expect the governors and party leaders in the state not to fight back.

How can a party sell form that nobody can afford?

The president could not afford it neither the governors.

This party therefore is not for the people.
